Sculpture description:
The Germany Ambassadorís speech during the inauguration Dear Representatives of the Art Institutions of Zambia, Colleagues, Members of the Press, Friends of the Fine Arts in Germany and Zambia! In the last rainy season, a storm hit on a weekend and created a lot of damage around the Embassy. The main victim was a beautiful old tree that had so far hidden part of the look at the not so beautiful German Embassy building from the street. At the beginning of the next week the tree stem looked reproachfully at us and we had an idea: Why pay to have the tree removed, have a hole in the ground afterwards and have to replant a little tree that will take a long time to grow, if one could also use the existing remains in order to create a work of art? So we approached one of the leading Zambian sculptors, Charles Chambata, with the help of Marc van Wesemael, the husband of one of our EU-colleagues and a great sponsor of artists and art collector. We left it totally to Charles to decide what he wanted to make out of this tree - and while we had expected a carving, he surprised us by leaving the tree stem untouched, thus keeping it as a symbol of nature. He added some figures coming out of this tree, modern men and women who while respecting nature want to build a prosperous democratic Zambia. Germany has proved in our long cooperation with Zambia since independence that as a true friend we have contributed in a lot of fields to this development, and so this tree sculpture is also a symbol of this trustful and friendly partnership. As you can also see something has been happening to our tree which was said to be dead: It was so proud of being a piece of art now that it started to develop new leaves. I will soon be leaving Zambia after 4 years and I am glad to yet be able to participate in this event. I would like to thank the sponsors that have helped us to make this happen and I would now like to ask Mr. Chafilwa, one of Zambia`s outstanding painters who by the way will show some of his works of art in Germany from November 2009, to introduce our artist Charles Chambata to you. Thank you for your attention.

Customer comment on 'Red Kite (Steel Bird of Prey life size garden sculptures)' by Ramsay Dick
Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
