A hamerkop is a prehistoric-looking bird that is native to Zimbabwe.

There is a line of quartz running through the serpentine on the back of the sculpture.

This piece was originally bought directly from Henry by the respected Matombo Gallery of Harare, Zimbabwe.

Matombo exported it to the USA for Henry Munyaradzi's solo exhibition at Nicole Gallery in Chicago in January 1991, where it remained until 2012 when it was brought to the UK by a private collector for sale through Guruve.

It is in immaculate condition. It is signed on the base. Full Matombo paperwork accompanies the piece.

Beware of less scrupulous people than ourselves selling non-authentic 'Henrys' - if the piece or the price looks to good to be true, there's probably a reason for it.
