The official launch of the ZimSculpt book ‘Journey From The Depths Of Zimbabwe’ was opened by the British Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Dr Rod Pullen at the Richard Rennie Gallery in Harare, Zimbabwe on 10th December 2004.
Artists featured in the book were also present for interviews and discussion.
‘Journey From The Depths Of Zimbabwe’ is a unique and refreshing view of the journey a stone sculpture goes through, from birth at the mines, artistic creation, transportation to an exhibition and finally to the buyers home.
A beautifully designed gift or coffee table book, frankly written by Carol Williams (author of Love and Life, UNDP) and powerfully photographed by Athol Rheeder, our resident photographer from the UK.
The book is not a guide to Zimbabwe, a collection of biographies or an academic review. Those books have already been written. ZimSculpt asks you to look differently at the stone sculpture.
