Guruve is offering this charming sculpture for sale on behalf of a private collector.
Colleen Madamombe is Zimbabwe’s best known female sculptor. She is most famous for her sculptures of large African ladies. Through their vivacious nature and flamboyant clothes she captures the vibrancy of sub-Saharan African life and culture.
The current owner acquired this piece at auction in 2016. Fortunately, it still has its original Chapungu Sculpture Park (Harare) certificate dated 28 Jan 1998. Combining this excellent provenance with the facial features and style of signature, we are certain that this is a genuine Colleen Madamombe sculpture.
For those more comfortable with imperial measurements, dimensions are 16 1/2” x 10 1/2” x 9” and weight 48 1/2lbs.
This sculpture is located in the UK. The buyer pays for shipping in addition to the price of the piece. If you are considering purchase, do get in touch for a shipping quote, giving us your delivery address and contact details.
Guruve are delighted to be able to show a genuine work by Colleen Madamombe. Sadly, forgers have targeted her work since her death.
We only show works we are convinced are genuine. We strongly advise collectors to acquire proper provenance wherever possible. The best provenance would be a photo of the artist with the piece or original purchase documents from a reputable gallery. Having them with an artwork greatly adds to its the value and future saleability.
