A beautiful mama and her sweet child on her back are depicted in this beautiful piece. Carrying a child is traditional in most African cultures, and more and more baby wearing is becoming known in the west as well. It is a great way for baby and mom to stay connected while she gets things done. This sculpture is made using traditional carving techniques, simple tools, and generations of experience and artistry in Zimbabwe. It is carved out of serpentine stone which is polished with sand and beeswax. The heat of fire is used to bring out the colors and textures in each piece upon completion.
