ZEB8

The zebra teaches us the beauty in individuality. The zebra's distinctive stripes serves as a protective camouflage against predators, who are often unable to pick an individual out from the herd. For herd members, the stripe patterns, unique to each zebra, have the opposite effect of helping to identify individual zebras. This dynamic animal thus helps us to both maintain our individuality in group settings and helps us to be supportive members of our communities. A third spiritual meaning for the stripes has to do with the integration of opposites, thus enabling us to see a deeper truth. As indigenous hard woods become increasingly hard to find, Mbare has shifted their focus now to developing products made from non-indigenous, non-endangered wood, like the Jacaranda wood. a product tag is included with this piece that describes how it was made, and information about the artist that produced it

Carved from a single piece, these wood animals are beautifully polished and carefully crafted. As indigenous hard woods become increasingly hard to find, Mbare has shifted their focus now to developing products made from non-indigenous, non-endangered wood, like the Jacaranda wood.  Artists scattered throughout Zimbabwe, mainly in remote rural areas, create Mbare’s wood sculptures.

The zebra teaches us the beauty in individuality and integration of opposites.
