Portrait Of Tendai
Arthur Fata joined Guruve's list of Zimbabwean sculptors in 2012. He is already a well-established artist with a reputation for experimental work.
His confidence with a chisel shines out of this wonderful piece, with its exaggerated but elegant facial features.
Marble is rare medium in Zimbabwean sculpture. It is mined in Zimbabwe and is as hard as the Italian varieties. Pink marble is very unusual and makes this piece a really special collectors' piece.
