A statue of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe was over the weekend presented to him by renowned sculptor Dominic Benhura and a group of other three sculptors from Mashava.
The Herald newspaper quotes President Mugabe saying;
This is wonderful art and the artists naturally are gifted people, absolutely gifted people.”
The statue, mounted in front of State House in Harare has brought about debate on twitter with many mocking the work of art.
Zim spculptors have artistic freedom. Art’s beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Benhura is a respected sculptor! https://t.co/gwR2cKeCF3
