Mozambique has always made its mark at an international level in the areas of architecture, art, literature and poetry. Names such as Malangatana , Mia Couto and Jose Craveirinha amongst others, are well known outside Mozambique. Various athletes are also well known in quite a number of sporting activities, in particular the international Olympic gold medallist Lurdes Mutola.
The creative local handicraft is very representative of the artistic spirit of Mozambican people. Worthy of special mention are the intricate and bizarre black ebony woodcarvings of the Macondes to be found in the Northern part of the country.
