Zimbabwe Stone Sculpture
Over the years Zimbabwean stone sculptors have proven that they have the ability to bring something new to the Fine Arts Sculpture Movement. The birth of stone sculpture in Zimbabwe was the consequence of an historic cross-cultural union between European interest in Africa and a group of African artists discovery of their own creative individuality. The Zimbabwean stone sculpture Fine Art Movement captured the imagination of the international community and was soon hailed as one of the most exciting contemporary artistic developments to have come out of the African continent. As the movement grew the artists found the harder material to be a greater challenge to their mastery. They began using Verdite, Leopard Stone, Springstone, Wonderstone and African Jade just to name a few of the incredible stones indigenous to the mines in Zimbabwe . They measure above 6 on the stone hardness reference guide where 10 is diamond.

Shona Fine Artists use simple hand tools- rasps, hammers, and sandpaper to create their sculptures. They are at the mercy of each stone. Hidden fissures and hard seams can often disappoint  and surprise the artist; making each carving a unique adventure.

Each Shona sculpture comes with a base which has been fashioned from an authentic piece of wood (the actual railroad ties) from an old railroad line in
Zimbabwe. Seekers of the exotic enjoy the spiritual and anthropological significance harnessed within these stone-carved heirloom treasures. All of these pieces bear the signature of the artist.
