About the Item: Teacher or Preacher' is an original black serpentine sculpture by the celebrated second-generation Shona artist Colleen Madamombe. The sculpture presents a character common to Madamombe's work: a woman with a round face and wearing a billowing, layered dress. In the sculpture, the woman stands with her arms reaching out toward the viewer, a book opens in her hands. The gesture is earnest and suggests she is as the title suggests. As is so desired of her work, this sculpture is a play on texture: their faces and hands are polished and smooth, which is juxtaposed with the rough-hewn surfaces of the clothing and hair.
