She is young and beautiful, with elegant features.

Rufaro originally trained with established artist Joe Mutasa. Here, he demonstrates his confidence with the chisel through the sharp definition he achieves in the features of her face.

Here at Guruve, we believe very strongly that our small sculptures should be of equal quality to the larger works. Certainly, our customers with smaller spaces or limited budgets shouldn’t have to compromise on quality. This delightful little sculpture is a perfect example of this philosophy. As an original work of art, it’s very affordable and it would also make a great gift.

‘Cobalt stone’ is the local Zimbabwean name for this lovely colourful type of serpentine. Curiously, it doesn’t contain any actual cobalt mineral (as far as we know) – perhaps it was originally discovered near a cobalt mine. This particular pinkish variety comes from near Guruve, a town in northern Zimbabwe.
