“Magnificently sculpted, regal and elegant – it’s so beautiful, and I’m even more attached to it since it was the first Shona sculpture my late husband and I ever bought together.”

This lovely colourful sculpture is a perfect example of Richard Mteki’s classic style. A really delightful artwork that deserves pride of place in any Shona sculpture collection. Recently fully restored by the experts here at Guruve, it’s in pristine condition.

This piece is being advertised for sale on behalf of its current owner, who purchased it from the respected Matombo Gallery in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1989.

Matombo’s reference number 659 is deeply inscribed above Mteki’s signature on the back of the piece.

This sculpture is in the UK and will be shipped from there; packing and freight and any associated import duty at buyer’s expense. Please contact us for a shipping estimate, quoting the delivery address with post code, if you are considering purchase.
