Waiting for dinner (Shona sculpture by Sampson Kuvenguhwa)

Intricate details in the posture and expression of the person waiting patiently for dinner in this stunning Shona stone sculpture by master artist Sampson Kuvenguhwa make it truly remarkable.

As with much of Sam Kuve's work, this sculpture is created in his unique Mapiti style, which incorporates both traditional and modern techniques. The result is a truly unique piece of art that showcases the beauty and versatility of Shona sculpture.

The person depicted in this sculpture serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of patience and the joy of shared meals in the Shona culture. With its timeless beauty and universal message, this sculpture is a testament to the power of art to evoke emotion and bring people together.
