Giraffe Family Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This African Giraffe family sculpture is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. Family is an important part of the Shona culture. This giraffe family sculpture portrays the bond of support between the giraffe parents and their children. The whole family unit is united to shield them from outside adversity while at the same time enabling them to express their love and closeness to each other. The giraffe is an animal that brings to your mind the savanna-jungle area of Africa. The giraffe symbolizes grace, peace, individuality, protection, communication, perception, and farsightedness.

YOUR PURCHASE MAKES A DIFFERENCE
This beautiful work of art was purchased directly from the Shona artists in Zimbabwe. We source our handmade Shona products through a small family-run supplier in Harare who has been working with and supporting these talented artists for over 10 years. Your purchases of these products help provide stable employment and basic needs for many dependents at a time when unemployment and inflation in Zimbabwe are at unimaginable levels.
All our African products are Fair Trade with the artists either working for themselves or working in co-operatives. The items purchased from our Shona artists support the indigenous tribes of Zimbabwe. We believe that it is now more important than ever to keep supporting these artists during these increasingly difficult times as the ability of these artists to support their families depends on our purchases.
