This piece is inspired by the thousands of women in Zimbabwe who rush to the market everyday to sell their wares and feed their families. With only 20% of Zimbabweans able to find formal employment many of the rest sell what they can on the streets to survive. The rugged finish of this piece really reflects the grit and determination of these women.
