A significant reason why these two works work so well together together is because they were created from a single piece of Butter Jade from deep within the deposit at the quarry at Birchinough Bridge. This N'Anga and wife exude charisma and power befitting their place in Shona society. The traditional healers are still highly regarded in Zimbabwe, and the wife plays a major role in her husbands practice.
Farai has the ability to make stone comes alive to a level rarely achieved by any sculptor, east or west. He truly is a master.
