Description

From a family of nine and originally from Mufulira on the Copper-belt, Fredrick has been in Livingstone 24 years and has nine children whom he has to support as well as his mother.

 He got into this trade through his father who used to make sculptures and he himself is now 34 years a wood carver. He prefers working in Teak and Mopani because it is natural looking.He sells his work at Zambezi Café in town but business is not strong. Some of his work goes to the more popular Mukuni Park Curio market where more tourists go but he doesn’t earn a lot through this.His highlight is when he use to display his product at Art café but unfortunately it is no longer in business.He expects to benefit well from this project because he will receive a large sum of money and he can buy his own tools and empower the upcoming artists in Livingstone and protect the family.“I selected the theme The brave man because every man has to be strong for the sake of the family and I feel this theme is very important because it talks about how should protect their family.”This sculpture has a story of a brave man who had two wives. One day he had gone to his field and when he came back he found his two wives seated. They had not prepared any food for the family because they were scared of a lion that was beside the stream.

 The brave man then escorted his two wives to the stream so they could get water and prepare food for their family. This is to show that a man should be brave in order to protect his family.“Finally, my time has come because my talent will be recognized by many people and I am the happiest person for my work to be erected at the Civic Centre”
