Sculptor


Another photo from the Celebration of Fine Art.  This is Gedion Nyanhongo, a very talented sculptor.  Gedion was born in Zimbabwe and he uses Opal Stone, Springstone and Nyanga Stone to create his works of art.  To see more of his work, click here.

I like his motto too: "Life is a gift."
You captured him very concentrated on his work and not at all distracted. Bravo!

I love shots of people at work and this one is super!

Karl said...

I agree with Kathy and Mo, he looks very concentrated.

I don't know if I'd have the courage to actually do my artwork in front of people.
It does take some skill as far as blocking people out for the concentration factor.

Nice piece!

Looks like he is determined "to get it right!" Great portrait of an artist at work. Thanks for the link, I enjoyed it; he is indeed a talented sculptor.

So intense. That's a beautiful stone he's working in. To see what's on the outside yet still envision what's hiding inside, is such a talent.

It is pretty special being able to watch the sculptor at work.

Wow great shot Sharon, this brought back memories for me. I lived in Zimbabwe (it was Rhodesia then) for over ten years, it was fun to watch the artists even then.

Great portrait. This piece is really interesting. I've seen a lot of African art in my travels but don't remember seeing three figures carved like this ever.
