A lovely little water beetle sculpture by Henry Munyaradzi, with his trademark angular face and perfectly round eyes.

It’s a great opportunity to acquire an affordable work by Zimbabwe’s most famous ‘first-generation’ sculptor from the Shona sculpture movement. Every collection of Shona sculpture needs a ‘Henry’, and this is a superb entry-level piece.

Henry has signed this piece on the base. This piece is being sold through Guruve by a collector. Unfortunately there is no provenance information to accompany the piece, but Guruve have inspected the sculpture and are certain this is a genuine work by the biggest name in the Shona sculpture art movement. A Guruve certificate of authenticity accompanies the piece.

Beware of less scrupulous galleries than ourselves selling non-authentic ‘Henrys’.

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