Carved Stone Abstract Animals


Abstracts: Shona artists' hand-carved stone sculptures of African animals

Shona artists, as well as creators of African art from other local and regional groups have long been exponents of the abstract.  We see more and more offerings which portray people in abstract form but continue being able to purchase a reasonably good supply of abstract animals from time to time.  African artists continue the use of different media, presented here by these abstract animal sculptures.  We hope you will enjoy browsing through this section.
