"The mother is comforting her daughter, for they are nicely dressed to go to an African ceremony and the daughter is furious about the time, they are late. So she has been taken to her mother's chest, her mother is telling her not to worry, that they will be there soon."

Boet's gift is to be able to take inspiration from traditional African society and express Shona customs in a fresh and exciting manner, coupled with such beautiful and intricate patterning.

Boet Nyariri is only the second artist ever to be awarded the accolade Best Sculptor twice in Zimbabwe's prestigious National Arts Merit Awards competition.
