The Shona people are recognized as the original carvers of stone. The art form is unique to the Southern region of Africa. It is called Shona Stone Sculptures. Zimbabwe remains the home and center for great stone carvers.
The sculpturing techniques are not necessarily passed down from father and son. Most of the carvers are related. The passion for the art is not hoarded, the only prerequisite to learning the trade is the desire to learn and the time to do it.
Buckley's African Imports travel to Zimbabwe and buy selected pieces directly from the artists. We guarantee each piece to ensure that our clients are purchasing the highest quality. We believe in fair trade. Our efforts promote and support economic security for the artist family.
