PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Zimbabwe has a long history of stone carving traditions dating back many centuries. In most recent decades this unique craft moved towards focusing on animals, and other items suitable for the tourism market in the region. Only a handful of more modern contemporary works of art are found generally outside of the country. Unfortunately, due to the extensive economic hardships the region has faced over the past two decades due to bad governance, the stone working and carving skills are not being transferred to the younger generations. Carving or "Art" as a form of income is not well perceived by the younger generations.
