Freddy Tsimba, sculptor: 'Whenever a white man visited my workshop the rent goes up. It'll happen again now that they've seen you. People think I am becoming stinking rich from my sculpting. Ten of my sculptures were seized at the N'Djili Airport in Kinshasa when they came back from an exhibition in Europe. I have to pay the customs people to get my sculptures back. But I do not have the money to do this at present.'.
