Long Description:
The plaque reads:

"He is still so young, but he understands so much and is easily hurt by our circumstances."

"Sylvester Mubayi
Born 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".

Certainly Mubayi is capable of creating 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." (from (visit link) )
