"Usually, the Chewa girls wear a headscarf, like Muslims. Like that, every woman looks beautiful."

Tutani is a new artist for Guruve this year, and we think his work is exceptionally stylish and accomplished.

The use of contrasting textures and finishes, and the sympathetic use of the natural form of individual pieces of stone, are typical of the Shona sculpture movement as a whole.
