The population of lions in the wild has been decimated since the mid-20th century. Zimbabwe, where this fierce lion is hand-carved from rapoko soapstone, is one of only a handful of countries where these kings and queens of the jungle are still found in the wild. Please accept variations in each unique stone.


Handcrafted in Zimbabwe. 6 1/2"L x 4"H.

The lion sculpture was a nice piece and a good addition to other Zimbabwe soapstone sculptures we already had. I gave this to my husband as a gift, and he was pleased. We both thought that the carving around the lion's mouth (teeth, etc.) was a little "rough" or unfinished looking, although the rest of the body was very nicely done.

Comments about Zimbabwe Lion Sculpture:

This lion statue was very inspiring and the ones that I gave as gifts (20) were all recieved with great appreciation. The symbol of the lion and it's roar as the statue depicts conveys a sense of courage and having no fear. I love the statue and what it represents.

      Comments about Zimbabwe Lion Sculpture:

      My little lion is regal and adorable at the same time. The stone that he is carved out of is beautiful and very heavy. I also received a card with the name of the sculptor, so I named him after his creator! After seeing my lion, my mama decided to order one for herself!

          I have given one of these to each of my children (all married). I had to because after I gave one at christmas to one of them the others were envious.

          Chunky rather ugly lion sculpture

          By Helen

          from NYC

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Zimbabwe Lion Sculpture:

          it is a rather coarse carving which does not reflect the feline nature of the lion. It does not look like the photo, the lion's mane is huge and roughly cut, rather crude. it undermines the real beauty of the lion.

          The picture on the website does not do justice to this piece. I found it much more detailed than I expected, the face especially. Good size, quite heavy and sturdy, won't break easily. Great gift for lovers of Africa.
