Artists scattered throughout Zimbabwe, mainly in remote rural areas, create these unique wood sculptures.
Indigenous hard woods have become increasingly scarce so this group has shifted its focus on developing products made from non-indigenous, non-endangered wood like the Olivewood.
Much care is taken in the carving and finishing of a product, and this same care is extended to the selection, maintenance and delivery of these fabulous one-of-a-kind sculptures. Carved from a single piece, these giraffes are beautifully polished and carefully crafted.
The giraffe is a graceful animal whose long neck represents the ability to be visionary while still viewing the past and present
Hand crafted in Zimbabwe
