Masiye was the 6th born in a family of seven and was supported by his father to take up wood sculpturing at his home village in Mukuni. For more than 21 years he has continued this work using Rosewood and Mukusi because it is easy to make any works out of these trees. Nowadays with his experience he can make anything and he sells his sculpture at Mukuni Park curios in central Livingstone.“Our environment has changed over the years as I now walk 25-30kms to source these trees at a place called Kunatebe. Many trees are being cut for charcoal to sell in the town”.He wants to use the money he will earn from this work to improve his business and to enable him to build a house for his family since he is just renting. He feels honoured that his work has been erected at the Civic Centre and his work will be exposed to many people. “I selected this theme bedroom apytiser because I knew that most of the other local artists would not think of such a sculpture.”
This sculpture talks about how the woman should be attractive in the bedroom. It also encourages men to appreciate their wives all the time in our communities. During ceremonies these models were made and given first to brave and outstanding men in our home villages.
“I am the happiest person for my work to be placed in such a great place like our Civic Centre.”
