WELLINGTON CHINGONDI STONE SCULPTURE
Hand carved stone sculpture by Zimbabwean artist Wellington Chingondi. This impressive piece is a great example of the stunning contemporary art that has emerged from Africa since the twentieth century.
Learning from his brother, Wellington has developed a modern style, focusing on more abstract interpretations. There is a beautiful simplicity to his work.
We fell in love with this piece because of its nuanced organic shape and combination of colour and textures. A standout piece for any room.

David Attenborough, an early collector of Shona sculpture, commented that:
“The real significance of this tribal art is that it shows us, locked within our own culture, that there are other ways of being human; there are alternative visions that have their own validity.”
