This Standing rabbit has been hand carved from very hard Springstone. Typical of Shona sculpture the artist has used unpolished and polished surfaces to create contrasting textures. The polished surface is sanded before being heated and a wax is melted into the stone. Once buffered the stone reveals this wonderfully tactile and beautiful surface.
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 Tengenenge the home and origins of Shona sculpture. It is our vision to see these traditional communities to continue to thrive.
