Gift MuchenjeBorn 1969 in Harare

    Encouraged initially by his brother Cosmos, Gift has worked at Chapungu Sculpture Park since 1989, always with great determination, application and perseverance but with little acclaim and little financial success. Over the past years, he has experimented with much larger works, carving numerous pieces which comprise the final work. In Beer for the wedding, four young women each with babies on their backs and beer pots on their heads, move rhythmically one behind the other. Entranced by the Mbira is another exceptional sculpture which captures a female Mbira player completely lost in her music. These large innovative works have met with immediate acclaim and suggest reserves of fine sculpture for the future.
