Mike Lambert, owner of the gallery, said: "Stone sculpture is the art form that most represents the people of Zimbabwe. The exuberance of the work, the variety of stone and the imagination and skill of the sculptors, have resulted in extraordinary critical acclaim internationally."
Born in 1968, Dominic Benhura has become one of Africa's greatest contributors to the world of contemporary art.

In Zimbabwe, he has become somewhat of a role model for young people, an inspiration for other sculptors, and his expansive sculpting studio is home to the finest young talent in the country.
He has won numerous awards for his work and, in Johannesburg in 2003, was delighted to be invited to meet Nelson Mandela, after which, one of his pieces, 'Swing Me Mama', was installed in the permanent collection at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg.
