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.



Shona Stone sculptures are Limited Edition pieces, one-of-a kind works of art created by some of the world's foremost Shona Stone artists
