Gabriel has been a sculptor for 35 years starting when he was very young. He has always worked in wood since he got into this trade and prefers working in ebony because it is strong and has a nice colour.“I make sculptures once I get orders as I do not yet have a shop of my own. My work has helped me to take my four children to school and to take care of my family. “He usually has a challenge to access the wood and he has to walk a long distance in Muchinga and Kwachibule sub villages to Mukuni Village where he lives. A highlight of his career was when he used to take his sculpture to Lusaka but business has gone down due to Coronavirus.He expects to benefit more from the project because this is the first time that he is going to receive a hug amount of money at once so that he can sustain his family at large. His very honored that his work has been erected at Civic Centre because it’s part of marketing his business as well.“I selected the theme for the wood carving – THE WARRIOR – because it talks about how the warrior protects his people in his village and ensures its safety.” This is a warrior who protects the village. Warriors in the village are the ones who look out for strangers and reports whoever enters the village to the elders. In old times of tribal wars with one village against the other village, the warriors were a very important group in the community. The warriors make sure the village is always at peace. “I feel great, humble and honored for my work to be erected at the Civic Centre Livingstone”
