Description: Beautifully Small Carved Wood Contemporary Nude Girl/young Woman/ Young Female Sitting weeping sculptures or statues or carvings or statuettes for sale, for Indoors /Inside or Interior display, by the Award Winning Wood Carver and Poet Charles Chambata. He Writes of this... "Love is like an onion, it has so many layers that if you try to cut across it, it leaves nothing but tears in your eyes. If you are not ready to get depressed or face any trouble in life, never fall in love with any one….but be assured that if you don’t fall in love, your life will no longer have its meaning…. We struggle to go to school, we struggle to find jobs, we struggle to find shelter, we even struggle to put food on our own tables and in the end we peacefully die ….but love is the only thing that I know brings a big difference in life.

He describes this lovely piece..
"Sculptures of young Ladies with exposed buttocks in the titles mentioned above….to me the arrangement and the shapes of the buttocks looks more like mountains….i came up with this concept because mountains are believed to be sacred places usually.
If you wish to see life from another dimension make an effort to climb a tall mountain, then you will see wonders!... unite yourself with fresh air and shut yourself in your own World during this intimacy with the fresh air and then enjoy the dialogue between your soul and nature. I can assure you that, you will feel how small you are and you will feel the presence of God as you penetrate slowly-slowly deep into imagination.
it is called “Mountains of hope”: because the buttocks are completely open and you are hoping to climb this uncovered mountain..

He Writes of this little Beauty...
"It is a sculpture of a young Lady who is being consoled by A Butterfly: I am trying to show the power that nature has when it comes to comforting us in time when even our own relatives and friends run away from us due to difficulties.
If you are disappointed by your lover,
If you feel lonely because no one is pleasing you any more,
Open your heart as wide as the world and fill your life with silence
then go out to nature and unite yourself with fresh air, I can assure you,
Nature will send you another comforter and he will comfort you in the presence of GOD.

'Coming out of nature to build the new world' by Charles Chambata
Description: The Germany Ambassador’s speech during the inauguration
Dear Representatives of the Art Institutions of Zambia,
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.

Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
