This lovely family of 5 is carved by hand by a husband and wife team, Samuel and Gladys Mashava. Also known as "Ukama" or "Loving Family", these Shona pieces are one of the most popular emerging African art forms. The figures show many family members, but all merge together at various points, symbolizing the unity and shared spirit of the family unit.
