Beautiful Big Five Wooden Wall Plaque is handmade in Zimbabwe, South Africa. Hand engraved with the Big Five safari animals of 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.
This wood plaque was handmade by the Shona artisans from Zimbabwe who have an international reputation for producing the highest quality wooden carvings available from Africa. The plaques are Fair Trade and your purchase of these masks will help provide a stable income and a good standard of living for the artists and their families.
