Resting their chin on their hands, this person is wondering what the future has in store for them.

As a refreshing contrast to the predominantly abstract sculpture that we show, this is a solid yet stylish figurative work by the brother of the late Gladman Zinyeka. The use of contrasting textures is a common technique typical of the Shona sculpture art movement.

This interesting stone is a variety of serpentine; all colouration in the stone is entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a layer of clear wax.
