Abstract wooden Shona family

Size: 25 cm (H)

This wonderful African Shona carving originates from Zimbabwe and is handcrafted out of a light brown wood in the abstract form of 3 wooden faceless family member embracing . The Shona carving has 3 heads that are faceless and in a flowing motion of their bodies as they mold into each other.

Abstract Shona art has become a world famous art and gets the name Shona from the Shona tribe that hand craft and sculpt theses wonderful abstract art pieces in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. These Abstract Shona sculptures are handcrafted in a variety of stones and wood and we have a large selection in our Abstract Shona gallery to choose from.

The Shona tribe is Zimbabwe's largest indigenous group. Drawing on ancient sculpting traditions they have produced a modern art movement of dignified, exquisite works. Reminiscent of Picasso and Henry Moore, these extraordinary, intense works speak to all humanity. It is a marvel to see an artist take a lifeless mass of rock, with its pale, jagged surface and mold it with their hands, mind and heart into a smooth, polished, brilliant work of art. This is the true spirit of Contemporary African Art.

All sizes listed are approximate. The Abstract wooden 3 Shona family carving you purchase and receive may differ just slightly in size, look, and/or color from the Abstract wooden 3 Shona family carving shown in the picture because each Abstract wooden 3 Shona family carving is handcrafted by individual artists.
