Bongo is from Zimbabwe and is returning for his 2nd year. Bongo started carving stone and wood in Zimbabwe when he was very young. His grandfather was his mentor and influence, as it is common for families to pass the trade of sculpting down to the next generation.
Bongo learned to carve with a homemade ADZE and he began to master his sculptors to exhibit in galleries in both Europe and USA. He has won multiple awards at chainsaw carving competitions.
