A Glimpse of Where Your Art Came From

When most people think of where art is displayed and comes from they may think of a nice little art studio or a sterile art gallery? Zimbabwe Artisan Alliance purchases art in Zimbabwe from hard working artists. The art ranges from Zimbabwean Shona sculptures, or stone sculptures, made typically from serpentine stone which is locally mined in and around Zimbabwe, recycled metal art sculptures, hand printed fabrics and textiles, and large paintings and drawings. Their art is displayed typically outdoors. The art is displayed sitting on the ground, across wooden palettes, on a blanket, or sometimes with a cinder block under it. This incredible artwork has humble beginnings in Zimbabwe, take a journey through these photos and see where this artwork has came from.
