African Art Traditional and Abstract Stone Carvings
African art sculpture portraying animals and people in both realistic and abstract form.
The pieces are all one of a kind, carved using different types of stone such as serpentine, verdite, springstone, African butter jade and rapoko, an African term for soapstone used by indigenous carvers throughout the world.
The term rapoko originated among the Shona artists of Zimbabwe, where it derived from the stone's common resemblance to the roasted millet consumed by a majority of that country's indigenous inhabitants.
Most of the stones are found in a large spectrum of colors, varying from creamy white to black.
We have an abiding love for the southern part of Africa: its people, its customs, its wildlife that exists freely within its remaining beautiful open spaces.
We are particularly fond of African art as represented by the beautiful stone carvings that we offer here for your examination and purchase.
The sculptures shown in this catalog are representative of those we import from Africa regularly.
