Abstract:

"Goerge Lilanga was born in Masasi in 1934. He was still very young when he learnt the art of sculpting wood, particularly ebony. In the sixties, he began to sell his sculptures to the Europeans working in the Lutamba refugee camp on the border with Mozambique. In 1971, his uncle made him come to Dar Es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, to help in the creation of Nyumba ya Sanaa (the House of Art), for which he made the doors sculpted from hardwood, the iron gates and the cement pediment. During that time Lilanga successfully experimented with etching, lithography, painting, batik and bronze casting."--Jacket.
