This Stone Elephant is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. Elephants are a symbol of Wisdom, Power, Loyalty, Intelligence, Strength, and Solitude. The elephant has a positive symbolic meaning all over the world and is considered a symbol of good luck when its trunk is in the upright position. When the elephant has its trunk raised in a joyous trumpet, the elephant triumphs over the challenges of its habitat. Each stone elephant is carved with realistic details and proportions, these highly sort after. Each elephant is individually hand carved so no two will be exactly the same. They will be similar in look and size to the picture.
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 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.
