Zimbabwean sculpture became commercialised in the 50's by the first Director of the Zimbabwean National Gallery, Frank McEwan, who saw the potential for artists to develop the means to continue this tradition.

Hence, a positive relationship has been fostered between Western art-lovers and Indigenous Zimbabwean sculptors.
