Zimbabwean sculptor Dominic Benhura

This video is about sculptor Dominic Benhura.

Right now, there is an open air exhibition of work by Zimbabwean sculptor Dominic Benhura in the botanical garden.

61 sculptures by this artist are on show.

Humans in various, mostly stylized, forms are the main subject.

However, Dominic Benhura also uses animals and plants as subjects.

They include a crab in springstone.

And a beetle; its body in springstone, and the six spots on its back in cobalt stone.

The sculpture Paired for life shows two cranes.

Another sculpture shows a spitting cobra.

Sculptures showing fish stand close to ponds.

The sculptures Sisal and Flowering are about plants.
