Shona Collectors African Adventure!

Our good friend Greg from the Blue Mountains is a Shona collector, photographer and lover of African art and culture. Greg purchased some of Stephen Murenza's renowned abstract sculptures and the artist sent him a personal note which was much appreciated.

"Tell him that I am happy that my sculptures have reached their final destination and you didn't just buy an object but you have bought a piece of heart , a part of soul and a moment of someone`s life! - Thank you."

"...Stephen’s words made the whole experience of coming upon my first Shona pieces so much more real and personal. To be able to hear about his life what he feels about his art and his influences are very special. Yes he can be assured that they have found their final destination and those feelings are shared."

 

Saint 'Mary of the Cross' - The Journey ends, her work continues!

All great journeys must come to an end. For Saint 'Mary of the Cross MacKillop' her journey to her new home is complete but her work continues. Renowned Shona artist Stephen Murenza has created an iconic Australian religious work of art.

Made entirely by hand from a single piece of African Springstone born out of the Great Zimbabwean Dyke. Saint 'Mary' will reside for generations of students and parishioners at Lumen Christi Catholic College, Pambula on the New South Wales south coast.

Her journey has taken many months, covered two continents and more than 13,000 kilometres by road and sea. Her work now begins in a new home where she will inspire a new generation "to never see a need without doing something about it."

Saint 'Mary of the Cross' -The Miracle of Faith!

After months of shaping raw Springstone from the Great Dyke of Zimbabwe, into the power and beauty of Saint 'Mary of the Cross' MacKillop. Artist Stephen Murenza has produced a Miracle of Faith!

Stephen has dedicated Mary to the students and teachers of Lumen Christi College, Pambula, New South Wales. In Stephen's own words he says, "I have produced her from the natural beauty of a stone called Springstone, with inspiration from the life of St Mary as an educator and from her most important saying: "Never see a need without doing something about it". It is my wish that this piece of Africa will live in Peace and Harmony in Australia.

God Bless,
