Rwanda Travel & Luxury 

Here is a fabulous tourist treat for travelers. In late 2019, spectacular life-like statues were presented, photos of a new sculpture in Rwanda, Kigali at Kicukiro-Sonatubes roundabout have recently been trending on social media especially on Twitter where it has received mixed reviews of people asking what it represented and others admiring the incredible artistry of the sculptures.




The sculptures are a mesmerizingly vivid depiction of the Rwandan culture as it shows two female dancers in the midst of a common dance in Rwanda known as “Gushayaya” and a male drummer ’Umukaraza’ beating a drum to match the rhythm of the dance.

The two dancers are dressed in the traditional dancing attire known as ’Inshabure’ with a closely-fitting bustier while the drummer is dressed in a wrapped skirt bunched at the hips and ornaments including ankle and head-band typical of warriors’ regalia in ancient Rwanda.

Pudence Rubingisa, the Mayor of Kigali said that the sculpture was created to spark strong emotions, especially from visitors as it is strategically located at a junction linking Kicukiro, Remera and the City center. “The sculpture will also be an attraction for tourists who will be visiting Rwanda once Bugesera International Airport will be completed.”

The iconic piece of art was sculpted by Pascal Bushayija, a graduate from Nyundo School of Art and Music who has participated in various art exhibitions both locally and internationally notably in Uganda and France.

The sculpture is mounted on a circular landscape ornated with the trending ’Imigongo’ patterns and renders a true narrative masterpiece carved into the metal.
