This sculpture is being offered for sale on behalf of the owner, who purchased the piece from an exhibition in London in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, paperwork from the original purchase has been mislaid.
A wonderful example of Bernard Takawira's work, a great name in early Shona sculpture. Pieces by Bernard do not come onto the secondary market very often, so this is a very special opportunity for a collector to own a piece of African art history.
It is in excellent condition, as it has been recently been professionally restored by Guruve. The piece is signed on the base.
It is located in the UK and will be shipped from there; P&P at buyer's expense.
