There’s something so magical and heart-warming about things that are carved by hand – and I am definitely moved by the energy of these hand carved Mhondoro Shona sculptures. Lovingly crafted by local artisans in Zimbabwe, Africa, each of these pieces is unique, and some are even signed on the bottom by the artist. These sculptures are truly works of magical folk art. Carved from granite, they are skillfully and emotively rendered, and each one emits the love and care of the artist. Truly enchanting!
The deeper magic of these hand carved Mhondoro Shona sculptures
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.
With this offering, you have the opportunity to choose between five sacred carvings: a small elephant, a medium, elephant, a small human, a medium human, and a large human. Adorn your sacred space with these hand-carved Mhondoro sculptures to brighten your room and to amplify harmony, peace, and positive vibrations. These sculptures have traveled all the way from Africa to bring you art, love, and joy. Display yours proudly on your altar or anywhere in your space you feel could use an exotic, hand-crafted influx of love and beauty.
