Product Description

Hand carving made from a solid piece of red serpentine, shaped into three Hippos. Shona sculpture is the name given to a modern movement of stone carved sculpture created in Zimbabwe.

It gets its name from the ‘Shona’ tribe of people (actually a mixture of many similar tribes with closely related language and culture) who are the largest in Zimbabwe. The work of Shona sculptures begin with the stone. Picking a piece of stone that is suitable for their intentions, or is simply a beautiful piece of material in itself is the first step. Shona sculptors often describe their work as “revealing the beauty” within the stone, saying that the material ‘speaks’ to them as they work.
