Pfungwa Dziike was born in 1972 in Mutare, Zimbabwe. He is celebrated for abstract figures of women, women with babies on their backs, and women or carrying pots of perhaps water/maize. While in primary school, Dziike’s parents passed away and therefore in the customary Zimbabwean way, he was raised by his grandmother. She used to make and sell clay pots, which Dziike started to assist her with. In doing so, his grandmother passed onto him many stories about the Shona traditions, giving Dziike a sense of motivation and contentment in his life.

What is Shona?
The best of Zimbabwe stone sculpture combines the splendor and solidity of the stone medium with imagery drawn from reality and abstracted into symbolic form. Figures and features that are reminiscent of, yet not quite like, animal, and human forms suggest the creatures and mythological beings that inhabit the realms of the religions and folklore of the Zimbabwean people.
