Zimbabwe Stone Sculpture

Fifty years after its emergence, Zimbabwean Stone sculpture is now hailed as one of Africa’s most original and internationally praised artistic movements. This informed retrospective reflects upon the origins and development of this movement and discusses some of the challenges it continue to face.

With its full-colour plates divided into six decades, this book showcase those artists who have made Zimbabwean stone sculpture so unique –- from the first artists to those of today, and from the very well known to the sculptors who still work behind the scenes (who still wait for recognition), to all those who create or have created with unfaltering imagination.

‘It is high time a retrospective book on Zimbabwe’s sculpture movement was published. Over the years, the movement has produced some of the world’s finest stone sculptors.’ – Dominic Benhura
