"When there's no water, to give a guest a drink to cool the hotness of their blood is the best way to look after them."

A guest never arrives empty-handed, and hospitality for visitors is a fundamental tenet of many African cultures.

As a senior man, Sylvester is a living repository of Shona values, and his sculptures are usually inspired by Shona customs or beliefs.

This is charming little investment piece by Zimbabwe's greatest living sculptor.
