Ironwood Lion Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This wooden lion sculpture is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. The lion is also known as “The king of the Jungle!” The lion has been hand-carved out of solid Ironwood and set in the natural black/brown color of the wood. This lion has been carved in a standing position and ready to attack. The shoulders are slightly back and ready to charge. The African lion is the undisputed heavyweight of the African Savanna, and the male lion has become known for his brute force and strength. With a long main and big head, this Ironwood lion makes for a wonderful addition to any home. Due to the handmade nature of this item, some variation is expected.

About The Artisans
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 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.
