Famous second-generation Zimbabwean sculptor Joe Mutasa with one of his sculptures

Joe Mutasa


Her proud features reveal a strong and determined character. Her face tells us she is an intelligent woman used to wielding power and authority.

Joe Mutasa is one of the best-known names in the ‘second generation’ of Zimbabwean sculptors in the Shona sculpture art movement. His contemporaries include Dominic Benhura and Royal Katiyo. Joe’s work is collected worldwide and his pieces are highly sought after. Joe is particularly well-known for his beautiful ladies’ precisely chiselled elegant features, and this is a super example of his quintessential style.

It has been a few years since we last had any works by Joe available, so we are delighted to see his return to Guruve’s gallery.

Apologies for the poor light in these photos – rainy season had well and truly arrived!
