Plumbed as a water feature

The piece depicts the intervention of the water spirit (Njuzu) on the tired and weary fishermen who have worked the whole day and whole night without catching any fish. At sunset, the evasive spirit comes out and sees their plight. She dives in the water and brings fish for the mesmerized fishermen. Devine providence is not uncommon in Shona's traditional belief where people plead with their ancestral spirits for provisions in times of bad luck.

MORGAN CHIJUMANI

Born on the 30th of November 1974. He comes from Nyanyadzi in Chimanimani District in the Eastern part of Zimbabwe.

ABOUT THE STONE:

Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures as a result of its 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 signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.
