“You can’t see her beauty unless you are at the correct angle.”

This slender sculpture has a very strong profile. Looking at her side-on, she has a striking beauty.

In Shona culture, a young girl should be shy rather than forward; this piece celebrates unselfconscious beauty.

Tutani has created the braids of her hair with a grinder. Then he sands, heats and waxes the stone to bring out the depth of colour.
