A superb miniature hand carving of the king of the jungle, the Lion. Very delicate sculpture made all the more appealing from the fantastic colors revealed by this type of stone. Butter jade stone is largely found in South Africa but has been sought after by Shona artists due to the fantastic finish that can be achieved from this type of stone.
Perhaps the perfect ornament to fill that special space. Or maybe a different kind of gift for that special someone or occasion. The sculpture is suitable for inside or outside the home, requiring minimal care.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: 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 where typically 10-12 artists work together to produce these fantastic pieces of art. It is our vision to see these small communities thrive buy providing a platform on which their sculptures can be sold.
