Description: “Rhinoceros” Springstone sculpture by talented Shona Stone sculptor, Kingstone Runyanga, beautifully communicates the need to protect this incredible animal from extinction. “Both black and white rhinos have increased in number in recent years thanks to successful conservation efforts, especially in South Africa. Thankfully, the white rhino has been brought back from the brink of extinction. Both are still at risk due to a huge surge in poaching to meet demand for illegal rhino horn, primarily in Asia. Countries and conservationists are stepping up their efforts but record numbers of rhinos are currently being killed.” Limited Edition, one-of-a-kind piece from Shona Stone Sculpture.

Notes: Shona Stone Sculpture | Exploring the Natural World | The Shona Stone Movement
Shona stone sculptors draw their inspiration from traditional culture (the mythology, folklore, rituals and beliefs that remain strong within Zimbabwean life), from the natural world and man's relationship with nature (reflecting the country's deep rural roots) and from family (especially women - dancers, mother and child, parental love and devotion). They learn by watching masters, by observing the stone and finally by picking up their tools and applying themselves to the stone. It is a contemplative art—a contemplative art that produces some of the world's most remarkable sculpture.
