'Excited Girl' is an original black serpentine sculpture by the celebrated second generation Shona artist Colleen Madamombe. The sculpture presents a character common to Madamombe's work: a woman with a round face and wearing a billowing, layered dress. In this example, the young woman seems to dance and sway in her joy, bringing Madamombe's larger themes of womanhood, sisterhood, and matrilineage to the forefront. As is so desired of her work, this sculpture is also a play in surface and texture: her face and hands are polished and smooth, which is juxtaposed with the rough-hewn surfaces of her clothing and hair.
