Welcome to Stone of Shona, a Sydney based importer of world class, contemporary stone sculptures directly from the master craftsmen of Zimbabwe.
We place these extraordinary works of art directly with designers, decorators and individuals who seek the rare qualities of combining sophistication, power and beauty of stone with the creative expression, culture and spirit of Africa.
We guarantee that our Shona stone sculptures, offer you the best value for money and quality in the world for collector quality Shona sculptural works of art.
These sophisticated sculptures will complement any modern décor, suitable for indoors or outdoors, the sculptures are all original, authentic works of art, hand carved from a single piece of stone, in the Shona tradition, sometimes over many months. The individual pieces are carved from various hard stone types including Springstone, Cobalt, and Fruit Serpintine. The styles vary widely representing animals, still life and amazing abstract sculptures.
The result is the magnificent colour and inspirational works of art produced by the Shona masters of Zimbabwe. This art form has a 2000 year history and has been reignited in the last 50 years to produce some of the world’s most powerful and beautiful works of art.
The process involves the artist working with the stone from the time it is quarried to try and interpret or reveal its spiritual nature. Only then can the artistic journey begin, chiseling the stone by hand to a point where the piece can be sanded, heated by fire and coated in bees wax to bring out the natural colour and texture of the stone.
At Stone of Shona, our passion is stone and we have been collecting Shona stone art for over 20 years. Our experience from living and working in Southern Africa has given us a unique understanding and appreciation of the culture and its people.
