African Zimbabwean Shona sculpture

450.00

Zimbabwe has large deposits of stone  - the Shona tribe has been actively creating these works since the 50's.  Artists are self taught.  In the words of Bernard Matemera, one of the founders of this movement: “The spirits are everywhere in the air, in the rocks. A rock is like a fruit – like an orange or a banana. You don’t eat them without peeling them first. It needs to be opened to be eaten. I open the rocks. The fruit is inside.”   http://www.zimart.ca/history.html
