This piece was originally brought to the UK by the highly respected Matombo Gallery of Harare, Zimbabwe. It formed part of the exhibition ‘Work In Stone: Five Contemporary Zimbabwean Sculptors’ (May – Sep 2002) at Broomhill Art Hotel and International Art Gallery in North Devon, England.
It is in very good condition. The original Matombo identifying sticker is still on the back. Full Matombo paperwork accompanies the piece. It is for sale through Guruve on behalf of a private collector.
A lovely example of Edward Chiwawa’s instantly recognisable work, and with a delightfully quirky humour.
