Large and powerful yet with a tender manner, the elephant is nature's gentle giant. Celebrate this most surprising of creatures with an elegant hand-carved stone statue made by stone artisans in Zimbabwe.
The Shona tribes of Zimbabwe, literally translated as "the house of stone," are considered by many to be among the world's finest sculptors. Modern Shona artisans select and quarry their own stones, just as they did thousands of years ago. Statues are hand-carved using simple chisels, polished with sand and beeswax, and heated on a fire to bring out their brilliant colors.
- Natural shona stone
- 4" H
- Handmade in & fairly traded from Zimbabwe
I bought the Elephant & Baby 6" stone statue for my mom. She found it to be absolutely beautiful, as did I. My mom has MANY elephant statues, but none are as precious as this one. I would recommend it to anyone who loves mother and child images.
Love it! Very sweet.
This is awesome. High quality stone and carving. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Looks great on my bookshelf with the two stone dogs I ordered from this website!
