Factor Ziira was born in Guruve, Zimbabwe in 1954.
He married the daughter of the late famous Henry Munyaradzi
and he started to sculpt mainly as Henry's assistant from the late 80's.

He works mainly on serpentine springstone and he followed in the footsteps
of his late father-in-law to make powerful but simple sculptures following
the shape of the stone. He prefers not to fight but instead
let the stone guide him.

His themes mainly revolve around family, animals, birds, playing children
as well as other forms that are traditional subjects of the Shona tribe
who are the majority tribe of Zimbabwe.

He has traveled to many European cities as well as a
variety of cities in the United States.
