An African stone sculpture created by hand by the Shona people of Zimbabwe. The Shona have been hand sculpting stone into works of art for almost a thousand years. The craft is ancient but the style has continually evolved and the sculptures created today are both beautiful and elegant. The contemporary yet eternal shape of these sculptures bring splendor to the home and compliment any decor. The sculptures portray themes representing the values in the Shona culture of family, love, life and nature. The stone used is serpentine and can be found in Zimbabwe with colors ranging from black and green to yellows, orange, grey, red, and even purple. Each piece is unique, both in the expression made by the sculptor's hands and in the natural patterns in the rock formed millions of years ago.
