Abstract Carvings


Shona and other African artists' abstract renditions of activities, people, individuals, and families

Shona artists, as well as artists from other local and regional groups have long been exponents of the abstract. We are seeing and consequently importing a much larger selection of hand-carved stone abstract art. African artists have been moving into use of some incredibly attractive stone and creating works that please even the most devoted collector of realistic sculpture. We think you will enjoy browsing through this section of our catalog.
