Gallant Horse Sculpture by Ephraim Chaurika - POA
Dimensions (cm): H70 x W45
I see horses which play like lambs in the field
Ephraim was brought up on a farm where the flaming nostrils and the rolling whites of the eyes of the horse caused him no fear. The Madzimu Bulls with heads of baroque gargoyles, speak of the Minotaur and the bull as myth. Ephraim brought the horse and the bull into the farmyard from the paddock, into the pen and the stable from the wilderness.
Ephraim Chaurika is an example of that kind of artist, who keep on exploring the possibilities in a few themes proud horses, dancing horses, the beauty of the stone combined with the elegant features of the animal, and the friendliness of the expression – not two of them the same, always new and genuine pieces of art.
Ephraim is one of the first generation artists. Ephraim currently works from his home and farm in Guruve, near to where Enos Gunja lives and works.
