Magnificent colour and inspirational works of art are produced by the Shona masters of Zimbabwe. This art form has a 2000 year history and has been reignited in the last 50 years to produce some of the world’s most powerful and beautiful works of art.

The process involves the artist working with the stone from the time it is quarried to try and interpret or reveal its spiritual nature. Only then can the artistic journey begin, chiseling the stone by hand to a point where the piece can be sanded, heated by fire and coated in bees wax to bring out the natural colour and texture of the stone.
