Imagine this sweet deer curled up near the fireplace in your home, or nestled in a quiet spot in your garden. She brings a welcome moment of pause, a reminder to be gentle and appreciate the simple pleasures of life.
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.
