She is young and beautiful and full of life.

Rufaro's confidence with the chisel shines through in her beautiful face with its sharply defined eyes, nose and lips. He has used a very narrow tungsten carbide-tipped chisel to create the detail of her hair; the shiny areas have been sanded smooth, heated and clear wax applied and polished.

A lovely small piece from the 2015 winner of the sculpture category in the National Arts Merit Awards in Zimbabwe.
