by Bernard Matemera


Mediums: Stone

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Discovery Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge St.

Owner: Joslyn Art Mueum

Additional Information: Bernard Matemera, one of Zimbabwe's master sculptors, was a founding member of the Shona Tengenenge Sculpture Village. A prolific sculptor, he creates powerful works of strong African imagery and subject matter. Matemera's sculptures are the subject of his dreams: animals, spirits, people, and creatures and the ever-present metamorphosis between them. His African neo-expressionism is often represented in enormous and deliberately grotesque dimensions, oscillating between the humorous and the tragic. Matemera is consistently faithful to his beliefs and sense of pride in his country with its inherited cultural and spiritual ancestry. This piece was a gift the the Joslym Museum in 2007 by Richard and Frances Juro
