Kaiba Zyangwa got into trade in 1992 through his uncle who used to make sculptures at Mukuni village. He has worked as a sculptor for more than 28 years in order to look after his children. As the 1
born he has also had to provide for his siblings. He has been always working on wood and he prefers working on Zebra wood because it’s strong and has an attractive colour. He sells his work at his shop in Mukuni Victoria Falls curio market.
Through his business he managed to build a house for his family and to take his children to school.
“Every month-end I used to take my work to Lusaka to sell at the big markets and these were good times. But due to Coronavirus business has gone down.”
He expects to do well from this project in that he will get some money and can buy cows for farming and he is very happy that his work has been erected at the Civic Centre because it’s also part of marketing his work.
“I selected the theme AFRICAN WOMAN because African women are strong and I know the African women take care of their family.
This is very important in our culture”.
An African woman is referred to a very traditional woman who believes in her culture. The sculpture depicts an African woman coming from the field carrying a child on her back and a pumpkin on her head to feed her family. This shows how the African woman takes cares of the family not just the husband.
“I am the luckiest artist for my work to be erected at the Civic Centre to encourage the world and the next generation how important art is”
