African Masters of Stone

  • This delightful sculpture depicting of Africa’s most well recognised animals..Here are some amazing facts about them….

    1/They have four stomachs.

    2/Their heads cannot reach the ground whilst the are standing.

    3/They can run at around 35mph over short distances.

    4/They young fall from their mothers almost 5 feet from birth!!

    5/Their spots form a unique pattern for each individual animal.

    Hand carved from Serpentine the detail is exceptional and the finish exceedingly tactile. The pattern of the giraffe is scratched over the polished finish. A truly unique sculpture carved from stone!

  • ABOUT THE ARTISTS: Many of our sculptures originate from small and sometimes rural sculptor communities in around the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare. This particular piece originated from a small community based in the suburb known as Chitungwiza where typically 10-12 artists work together to produce these fantastic pieces of art. It is our vision to see these small communities thrive buy providing a platform on which their sculptures can be sold.
