This fantastic curvy piece lends itself to so many creative uses, whether it is a bird bath, a decorative bowl or a basin. Hand carved in Zimbabwe from beautiful 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.
