Another wonderful example of a fresh, modern take on a traditional lover's sculpture! The v-shape at the base indicates the unity of love, and the geometric shapes offer a minimalist interpretation of love. The flow and movement in this piece represent the dance that is to be partners in life. Hand carved in Zimbabwe from beautiful serpentine stone, this is truly a one of a kind!
The Shona tribe 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.
