NORBETT SHAMUYARIRA

Norbert Shamuyarira was born in Chinhoyi, northern Zimbabwe, in 1962. Losing his mother when he was only nine years of age and his father leaving the homestead shortly thereafter, was devastating for young Norbert. Not long after that, he also lost his brother, who committed suicide.

He found an outlet for his grief when he began sculpting at the age of 17 after a chance encounters with a very famous Zimbabwean sculptor, Bernard Takawira. His family history has had an insightful influence on his work and his sculptures, which often examine human relationships and personal feelings. He is also known for his amazing sense of humor.

His work is displayed in the Atlanta Airport, and is in collections worldwide.

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.
