Famous Zimbabwean sculptor Edward Chiwawa of the Shona sculpture art movement

Edward Chiwawa


If only every fishing trip was as successful as this one! He carries home a fish nearly as big as himself, no doubt to the congratulations of his family.

Edward was one of Zimbabwe’s last remaining ‘first-generation’ sculptors from the Shona sculpture art movement until his death in October 2022. Therefore, a lovely little Chiwawa sculpture such as this is a great entry-level collector’s piece. It represents a super opportunity to own an original and unique work of art at a very affordable price. Alternatively, it would also make a stunning gift, especially for a keen fisherman!

Edward signed it on the base.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense, with small grains and a uniform internal structure with very few flaws. Because of this, it is a perfect sculpture medium.

This sculpture is in the UK and will be shipped from there;
P&P at buyer’s expense.
