Rufaro won the prestigious NAMA prize for sculpture in 2015, and was a finalist in 2016 and 2014.
His work is elegant and beautifully detailed, and he was a deserving winner.

This year, Guruve have added Rufaro's very talented brother Stephen to our gallery, so please check out his sculptures too!

Springstone is the local Zimbabwean name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is suitable for outdoor display, but we would recommend covering this piece during a hard frost for peace of mind, as some parts of the sculpture are quite thin.
