A lovely example of Henry’s work, the most sought-after name of the Shona sculpture movement, encapsulating the subject matter with charming simplicity of form.
This sculpture is being advertised for sale on behalf of a private collector who worked for the British Council in the 1990s. It was bought directly from Henry himself in Zimbabwe in 1991.
The piece is signed ‘Henry’ on the base. It is in excellent condition for its age (there are just a few tiny marks) – it has been well loved and looked after!
There is a natural line in the stone on the back, clearly visible in the photo, but it doesn’t show on the front and we are happy that it has not been broken.
It comes with the original receipt for the sale from Henry (written on British Council headed paper!), along with a certificate from Guruve.
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.
This piece is in the UK and will be shipped from there;
P&P at buyer’s expense.
