Sculptor

“It’s about the importance of making time for yourself.”

Tago explores the different aspects of human nature, using his trademark storks as symbols.

Tago has kept the form of the sculpture simple so we can enjoy the wonderful colour and pattern within the stone. The simplicity of form echoes the stillness and calm we all need to find to refresh our inner selves.

Since he recently survived a life-threatening condition, Tago has a new emphasis on health and wellbeing in his work. He used to be the kind of person who rushed about all day every day with myriad demands on his time. He now makes sure to find the time to rest, and to look after himself first.

Agate is a very unusual medium for a Zimbabwean sculptor; indeed, Tago is one of very few artists who dare to take it on. Its extreme hardness (it needs electric tools to be worked, as it can’t be done by hand) makes it difficult and expensive to sculpt, but the end result is extraordinary.
