Zimbabwean 1977-
Tombstone For Rhodesia
2016
engraved Zimbabwean black granite
40 by 69,5 by 6,5 cm

Notes

‘The Maxim gun was used by a small number of settlers to colonise the country they then called Rhodesia. Ninety years later, after a war against the colonial masters fought with the help of another weapon – the AK-47 – the country became Zimbabwe. These two guns can be seen as bookends for the colonial time of Rhodesia and this is its tombstone.’
