African Shona Elephant Sculpture
African Shona Elephant Sculpture
(Based on 13 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents
Shona art, created by Zimbabwe's largest tribe, is one of the most significant art forms to come out of Africa in the 20th century. Family relationships, such as this pair, are often represented by the animal kingdom in Shona art. The artists believe that their chiseling and polishing releases the spirit form that is trapped within the rapoka stone. As each piece is one of a kind, please expect variation in the color and veining of the stone.

Shona Giraffe Sculpture
Shona Giraffe Sculpture
(Based on 26 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

Shona is a 20th-century name given to a number of related ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. They speak similar dialects of a standardized Shona language, and many trace their ancestry back to the 12th-century capital city of Great Zimbabwe, whose ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today’s Shona stone carvers draw inspiration from those ancient builders and speak of releasing the spirit trapped in stone as they carve and polish with hand tools. Each handmade sculpture is unique, as is the raw, hand-quarried soapstone it emerged from; please accept variations.

South African Raku Elephant
South African Raku Elephant
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents
Artisans in South Africa use raku pottery techniques to create this colorful elephant. The bright color-block pattern is inspired by the beadwork and painted homes that are artistic hallmarks of the northeastern Ndzundza Ndebele people. Elephants symbolize steadfastness and wisdom—a pair of curved tusks even frames South Africa's coat of arms. Popular lore says that elephants never forget, and they often recognize humans and other elephants even after decades, making this handcrafted sculpture a touching gift for a loved one who is far away. Colors may vary in each handcrafted sculpture.

Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
Peruvian Reverse-painted Butterfly Box
(Based on 11 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by settling Spaniards in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style found on mirrors and other Spanish household objects and, in time, added so much of their own inspiration that the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. There are a dwindling number of Peruvian artists who still practice this unique and romantic art. Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.
