The Tonga are a sub-group of the Shona who live in the Zambezi Valley in northern Zimbabwe. The calm, confident, enigmatic smile of this young Tongan woman subtly enlivens her face . . . forever. The subtle patterns in the stone itself adds to the visual excitement of the work.
Farai has the ability to make hard, unyielding stone come alive . . . forever. . The clever juxtaposition of the textures of the turban, corn rows, necklace are truly masterful. Note, too, the articulating earrings.
