These stone sculptures are made in Zimbabwe, a country in the southern region of the African continent just north of South Africa. The "Shona" tribe has traditionally carved these sculptures. Representing over 80% of the population, the Shona tribe is culturally the most dominate tribe in Zimbabwe.
Stone carving has been a part of the Zimbabwean culture since 1200 AD when Great Zimbabwe, an archeological masterpiece of their early ancestors, was built.
These sculptures are produced from a variety of stones. Serpentine stone, with its considerable range of colors and hardness, is the material most commonly used by artisans. Most serpentine stone used was formed over 2.6 billion years ago. Serpentine stone exists in a diversity of colors including black (the hardest and least common), browns, mauves, greens, and yellows.
