Tengenenge Sculpture Village

Tengenenge is situated against the Great Dyke, seemingly a typical African village in the North of Zimbabwe. However at Tengenenge almost everyone, male or female, is a sculptor working the good quality serpentine and springstone mined locally from the Great Dyke.  The village is an open-air gallery where many sculptures are exhibited, each on their sculptors own stand. They receive the stone for free; Tengenenge organisation takes care of the sales and community services such as water and electricity with an artists’ commission.

Tengenenge Sculpture village has guesthouses which are very furnished very simply, but are clean and comfortable and visitors who want to stay overnight will be guaranteed a warm welcome and traditional meals and dancing.
