Shona art, created by Zimbabwe's largest tribe, is one of the most significant art forms to come out of Africa in the 20th century. Family relationships, such as this pair, are often represented by the animal kingdom in Shona art. The artists believe that their chiseling and polishing releases the spirit form that is trapped within the rapoka stone. Zimbabwe artist Pangani Kwinjo presents the sculpture.

As each piece is one of a kind, please expect variation in the color and veining of the stone. The placement of the baby elephant may also vary.
