Wimbai Ngoma

Born in Nyanga Zimbabwe in 1975, Wimbai trained at the Chapungu Sculpture Park in Harare, Zimbabwe.

In 1997, he started sculpting on his own producing highly acclaimed sculptures and participated in local exhibitions. He was honored at the Agio Sculptors’ Symposium in 2005 and in 2007 won the “Celebration” Award, sponsored by the Korean Embassy. In 2008 and 2011, he was invited to exhibit and conduct workshops in Germany, where his work was exhibited at Botanical gardens in Dortmund.

ABOUT THE STONE FROM ZIMBABWE

Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness.

Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and the natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures because of their geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws but rather signify the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors can work with the stone due to its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment, for example a garden.
