This style of Shona sculpture - the "African Mamma" was first created by Colleen Madamombe in Zimbabwe. Since her death, many of her understudies have continued with her unique interpretation of the African Women and their lifestyle. Beautiful detail and peaceful faces make these items particularly special. These Shona sculptures are a beautiful part of the Zimbabwe art culture.
A Shona sculpture of an African Mamma. This beautiful piece features a gorgeous combination of colors and blends within the stone, locally found in Zimbabwe and a tranquil expression. Great piece with detail in her hair and her dress.
