This Ebony Wood Coaster Set is handmade by our Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. The coaster set has safari animal etchings of the Big Five animals in Africa.  The term Big Five “refers to Africa’s most popular wildlife which is the lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, African elephant, and rhinoceros. These animals were called the big five animals by the big hunters of the last two centuries. They named them Big Five animals as they were considered the most dangerous animals to hunt. This is because these animals fought back when they were being hunted.
