WELLINGTON CHINGONDI STONE SCULPTURE

Sale price Price £900.00 Regular price £0.00

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.

48h x 10w x 8d cm 

Made in Mashonaland, Zimbabwe.

Made of Spring Stone

One of a kind item.

 

 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.”
