Metal Shavings Sculptures

Metal Shavings Animals are created from discarded metal in Zimbabwe by artist Amos Guta.   Born in 1972 and brought up by his blacksmith father, Guta began his training in wood carving when he joined the Artwork Missions.  From there he began designing fine art and in his words: “In 1996 God multiplied my ideas and I became the first person to create sculptures from metal shavings”. 

We are pleased to offer these amazing sculptures built with metal shavings attached to a wire frame.  Sturdy and whimsical, each has a distinct personality sure to please the most discerning collector of these giant animals.
