Colleen MadamombeBorn in 1964 in Harare

    Colleen Madamombe came to Chapungu Sculpture Park in 1987 to help polish her husband’s sculpture. Encouraged by her friend Agnes Nyanhongo, she soon began to sculpt and has achieved much success. Her smaller works, mainly robust female figures, have an instant attraction, much charm and humor. Her major works, many created during her years in residence at Chapungu, show originality, deep insight into the role of women in Zimbabwe, and strong, individualistic style. Perhaps her most important work, The Birth, depicts in two large pieces of Opal Stone, a rural African birth.
