George Lilanga di Nyama, Tanzania (1934 - 2005)

George Lilanga was born in 1934 in Kikwetu Village  in southern Tanzania and passed away in June 2005. Like most Makonde youngsters, he learned to carve on soft cassava root; later he graduated to carving the hard black wood made famous by Makonde artists. He later came to Dar es Salaam where he joined a group of carvers. But his big break came when he was hired as a watchman at Nyumba ya Sanaa now called Nyerere Cultural Centre.
