Patrick Mavros Patrick Mavros

Patrick Mavros has created some of the most extraordinary silver sculptures in Africa, on his estate in the wild hills outside Harare in Zimbabwe.

Born and raised in Matabeleland (the wild, western province of Zimbabwe), the young Patrick developed a deep affinity for its wildlife, particularly the birds of prey. Like many an artist before him, he strove to capture the form and essence of the birds and animals on paper - as evidenced by his boyhood sketchpads.

Mavros developed his own unique sculpting technique, using innate artistic skills and his acute eye for detail and essence. The more he worked, the more he was inspired to try more ambitious subjects. He experimented with various tools and materials, and, with the encouragement of his wife and family, was soon involved in his own full-time business.

Most of his early pieces were one-offs. However, to meet growing demand and develop a more environmentally-sensitive product, he studied and adopted the age-old art of lost-wax casting, whereby a mould is used only once. This method ensures that every detail of the original is present in the casting, and that each resulting piece is individually hand-made. He decided on silver as a material in order to express both the precious nature and essential purity of his subject - wildlife.

 



Mavros Animals

All these animals are secondhand models, most were orignally bought in th 1980's and 1990's.
The older ones are heavier than the newly made ones, we sell them at less than the brand new ones.

We are always interested in buying collections of Mavros, and we pay very competetive prices. Please contact us on 01488 683922 if you are interested.

Having the most bizarre appearance on the African skyline, the Baobab tree has inspired many tribes to call it the 'Upside Down Tree'. The Patrick Mavros ancient Baobab was built from memories of many Baobabs in Zimbabwe, particularly those along the Zambezi River and those cavernous ones from the southeast low veld.

The Bushmen who shelter under the tree are cast in solid 18 carat yellow gold, and the tree itself is cast in sterling silver, which is the natural colour of the Baobab tree. Only two of these special pieces are created per year

PATRICK MAVROS Silver Elephant 'Mafunyane'PATRICK MAVROS Silver Elephant 'Mafunyane'

Height: 7.5 cm
Length: 12.5 cm


SOLD

In the Shangaan dialect, Mafunyane means ‘the irritable one’. Mafunyane was probably the most famous of the Magnificent Seven tuskers. This magnificent but bad-tempered bull elephant, who stood 327cm at the shoulder, was easily recognisable by his straight chisel-ended tusks and by the large hole in his forehead. The size of a man’s fist and probably the result of an old bullet wound, this hole went right down through to his nasal passage. When he spouted water from his trunk, a similar spout issued out of his forehead!

PATRICK MAVROS Silver Elephant 'Ndlulamithi'

Height: 7.5 cm
Length: 12 cm

SOLD

The name Ndlulamithi, which means ‘taller than the trees’, is a name that is revered among the Shangaan people of southeastern Africa. This bull earned his name from his shoulder height, which was around 340-345cm.
