Shy Bird

African Masters of Stone


  • The “Shy Bird” sculpture is Hand carved from Serpentine, which is both delightful to look at and to touch. Unlike other forms of sculpture it is unique since the patterns in the stone cannot be replicated. The piece is carved using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for literally hours through varying degrees of sand paper until the artist reaches 2500 grade sand paper. The sculptures are then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally they are buffered to leave this wonderfully tactile surface


    Perhaps the perfect ornament to fill that special space. Or maybe a different kind of gift for that special someone or occasion. The sculpture is suitable for inside or outside the home, requiring minimal care.

  • 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 Chitungwiza on the outskirts of Harare. It is our vision to see these traditional communities to continue to thrive.
