Thapong: Botswana’s finest visual artists – II

Zachanah: “I manufacture indigenous instruments of Botswana like the marimba, the segaba, setinkane, djembe drums, timbila, and several types of shakers. The instruments are made of local wood and goat skin.

I like to frame some of my instruments to turn them into beautiful wall decorations.”

Christian: “I was born in Zimbabwe and came here in Botswana in 1992. I started carving when I was still in school.

My uncle taught me how to work with different materials. I started with clay, then with stone and wood.

I mostly do fine and abstract art using stone and hardwood materials.

I like to use tree roots and trunks to create my pieces, following their natural shape. I make chairs, tables, vases and sculptures that represent my culture”.
