Hands of Clay

Picture of

The imaginary world of a unique and refreshing artist from Mozambique who expresses herself with clay, a traditional African material.
Reinata Sadimba was born in 1945. Her age hasn’t erased her lively sparkle, as if she were still a cheerful little girl. The sculptures tell all sorts of stories drawn from real life and her country’s folkloric tradition. It is also her way of exorcising ghosts and demons. Exhibitions in the USA, Japan and Germany have earned her worldwide fame. She is an eccentric character who loves to dance in men's clothes.
