Fungai Kwendambari: Like many of the sculptors of Zimbabwe, Fungai is from the predominant ethnic group called the Shona. His sculptures of animals have been very well received. Kwendambari works almost exclusively in semi precious Verdite. His sculpture is very realistic and it expresses the beauty of the magnificent animals in all their glory. Although Fungai relies on his sculpture to support his family and he has great passion for his work. He loves being able to bring the stone and his imagination to life.

Well received by collectors in Zimbabwe and overseas. His work has also been shown at the following exhibitions:
