Being a hippo is hard work -- even if it isn't all animated ballet dancing! This icon of the African wilderness strikes a casual pose to brighten up your desk, table, or curio shelf. After all...why stand when you can sit?
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.
