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 rapoko 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.


Please see alternate product images for examples.

    Gift to oldest son & (growing - #2 in the "hopper") family. They love it. Used as decoration, but warned them soapstone is NOT a hard stone, so make sure in secure location

      Comments about Shona Giraffe Sculpture:

      This giraffe sculpture is so much more than I hoped it would be. It is more substantial in size and weight which is a great benefit. I have 100+ giraffe themed items in my home and this by far is the best. Thank you National Geographic.

      Comments about Shona Giraffe Sculpture:

      I use it to compliment my other African art pieces. It is more fragile than it looks. The one my husband bought for me as gift fell and broke so this is a replacement.

        I have collected giraffes for several years. This is the most unique giraffe collectable I have. It is very unique. I appreciate that information about the creator is included with the sculpture.

        Beautiful sculpture

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Shona Giraffe Sculpture:

        This sculpture is exactly as shown in the pictures. It's unique and beautifully crafted. While I realize stone has variations it would be nice if you could choose the hue. However, having said that, I'm still very pleased with this product and would purchase it again,

            This is an absolutely stunning sculpture. Smooth to the touch and delicately carved, it epitomizes family love. I gave it as a gift and my daughter could not stop raving about it and she immediately made a space for it in a prominent place. I also appreciated the hand written name of the artist along with the explanation of his craft. Thank you
