“The nice shape of the water droplet shows that it is clean and safe, which is vital for healthy living.”

Inspired by being selected to take part in an international artists’ competition on the theme of water conservation in 2015, Tanyanyiwa contemplates the essential nature of water in this powerful yet simple work.

The lines of this sculpture are incredibly simple. It encapsulates everything that is great in contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture. Tanyanyiwa really is one of the stars of his generation. We have promoted Tanya since he was a teenager, having seen huge potential in even his earliest work.

It is also tremendous value for a unique work of art and a fine example of our belief that we should provide art of the highest quality for all budgets.
