Tin Animals of Zimbabwe: Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from business in the industrial areas of Harare are turned in to these delightful sculptures by artists using snips, pliers, and hammers. They depict animals familiar in Zimbabwe, such as this ostrich.
These creations are made possible by the Improved Arts Metal Sculpters Project, an organization formed in 1986 by five brothers - Moses, Peter, and Norman Mkankha, Charles Banda, and Emmanuel Homodza. The brothers came from a poor background. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork, and to earn a better living.
Body and Soul, Winston-Salem’s 2018 business of the year was started 19 years ago by Dana and Michael Suggs. Body and Soul is a cultural gift store with 4 stores in one, located in the heart of the Arts District in downtown Winston-Salem. There’s a book room with the latest and popular books primarily by African American and local authors, a Skincare area based with Shea Butter and Aromatherapy products, a Gallery that features items imported or inspired by Africa, and a sight-seeking Boutique area that offers the latest pieces of jewelry imported from all over the world including accessories and bags you could only dream of. Body and Soul offers customers the latest fashion for today’s stylish consumers. At Body and Soul we offer unique contemporary styles affordably priced.
It gives me warm and fuzzy feelings to enter the store and enjoy the colors and varieties of viewable, readable, wearable, smellable, feelable...art and culture! The atmosphere is welcoming and, oh, how hard it is not to spend so much time and money in the store! I highly recommend visiting and buying!
