This African Shona elephant sculpture is hand-carved from Green Serpentine stone, both delightful to view and to touch. If you’re looking for an indoor or outdoor elephant sculpture, Serpentine is ideal as it is suitable for both and requires minimal care. Our small animal statues make a lovely gift for a special someone.
African Masters of Stone have several stone elephant ornaments as well as many other small animal statues in varying sizes and stone. While depictions in African Shona elephant sculpture may repeat, the patterns in the stone cannot be replicated, making all of our small animal statues unique. The artist carves the stone using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for hours through varying degrees of sandpaper until smooth. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave a wonderfully tactile surface, almost irresistible to touch.

Many of our sculptures originate from small and sometimes rural sculptor communities in around the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare. This particular piece originated from a small community based in the suburb known as Tengenenge the home and origins of Shona sculpture. It is our vision to see these traditional communities to continue to thrive.
