Shona artist Tonderai Sowa with one of his abstract sculptures

Tonderai Sowa


“Giving helpful tips to a friend.”

The two loops lean in towards each other, suggestive of friends getting their heads together. In Zimbabwe, gossiping doesn’t have the slightly negative connotations it might do in other cultures. A quick chat, the sharing of knowledge and ideas, a news update, all are useful and helpful.

This is a one-off sculpture, signed by the artist. As with all his pieces, Tonderai has sculpted it from a single piece of stone.

It would make a super gift – an original affordable work of art accompanied by a presentation folder with certificate, artist biography and a photo of Tonderai with the piece.
