ARTIST: COSMAS CHIFAMBA
Sculpted by 2nd Generation SHONA artist, COSMAS CHIFAMBA.
This stunning sculpture is hand-carved from a single piece of RED & BLACK SERPENTINE
Lovely contrast between the raw and polished stone, making this a very attractive piece.
'My first touch on stone was a human head and I did this at the age of fourteen. The head came out of the idea that came into my minds at a tender age when we used to do mud molding whereby we were making mud vehicles, animals and human heads. So my first ever sculpture on a stone in 1990 was bought by John Deere and this sale inspired me to work on more sculptures. I went on to create ladies figures and Anthony Ponder from America bought the sculptures. Those were happy days because I was at school and I became the richest boy as compared to other students. My classmates were surprised when I bought a stereo radio. Above all, I was the first student to be visited by a white man at school'.
All the work carried out on these sculptures is done entirely by hand.
This sculpture would enhance any home setting.
