Art ex­hi­bi­tion

The National - News - Arts & Life - - Front Page - Dubai

See a group ex­hi­bi­tion of stone sculp­tures cre­ated by the Shona tribe in Zim­babwe, who be­lieve in a spir­i­tual con­nec­tion be­tween them­selves and the stone, which they craft to “free” a shape that joins the con­tem­po­rary world. Ukama is an ethic held by the Shona peo­ple based on n the fact that hu­mans should be con­cerned with the well-be­ing of those who will live in the fu­ture, hence the strong tra­di­tion of stone sculpt­ing is passed through gen­er­a­tions.
