The Zulu people are one of the most well known of all the African tribes and are known for their exquisite Zulu beadwork, Zulu baskets and Zulu shields. Wood carvings have become a new form of craft work that the Zulu people have adopted and the skill is being handed down from father to some. Wood caving is dome by the men while weaving of baskets and beadwork is done by the women.
Each African figurine is an "original" work of art, individually handmade, no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the African figurine as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical.
