Sylvester MubayiBorn 1942 in Chiota

    Dedicated to his own traditional beliefs and customs, Mubayi is inspired by the fusion of spiritual and earthly worlds and of human and animal iconography. He comments “I know my culture-I know how to supplicate my spirits”. Since the early days of Tengenenge in 1966, he has been an influential figure, winning many awards to much acclaim. Mc Ewen described him 1981 as “The greatest stone sculptor of this century”. Mubayi creates works so powerful ad uncompromising, that one flinches before them, and others so sensitive and tender that one is deeply moved. A committed family and community man, he is as proud of the amateur football team he founded and supports, as he is about his sculptural achievements.
