Zimbabwean stIMG_0741one sculptures are of high quality and are ranked among the best art pieces ever produced in the world. They indicate a great deal of originality and creativity due to the effort put during their sculpting processes.

All artists that are being promoted by  AVAC Arts practice the basic and truest forms of producing real valued art works. They make use of their raw talents and keep away from the use of power tools in producing their works.

They use the touch of their hands to do most of their works with the aid of a few common tools such as hummers, chisels and sanders and polishes for finishinDSCF2732g their pieces. They take their time to express and convey their thoughts and ideas through their artworks.

AVAC Arts has an idea of bringing back the real value of art, which was practiced back in the days when art and talent was respected and regarded as a precious gift.

Zimbabwean and the whole of African art history has played a significant role in shaping the culture and history of the world. The belief that Africa is the cradle of the history of mankind is virtually unshakeable. The origins of African art history lie long before recorded history, preserved in the obscurity of time.

Colonialists most often did not give indigenous art the merit and attention it deserved thereby African art history was not preserved or documented, hence AVAC Arts is working to rectify this deed.

  1. It is amazing that the artists mostly use their hands during work. When they use tools they are small and common like chisels and hammers. I think this is what makes each piece so unique and special.

  2. My neighbor will be going to Africa, and he is looking to find a souvenir while he is there. It is good to know that stone sculptures are of high quality and are ranked among the best art pieces ever produced in the world. I am glad to learn that to make these sculptures, people make use of their raw talents and keep away from the use of power tools. I will recommend one of these sculptures as something my neighbor should bring back as a souvenir, thanks.

  3. Thank you for the positive feedback. Most artists do not use power tools but some now are slowly beginning to do so. Stone sculpting is a very difficult profession and requires a lot of commitment. Which part of Africa will your neighbor be visiting? I hope they will enjoy their visit.
