Ironwood Hippo Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This Wooden Hippo sculpture is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. The Hippo has been hand-carved out of solid Ironwood and set in the natural black/brown color of the wood. The wooden Hippo is carved in a standing position as if walking casually around. The artist that hand carved this Hippo is from Victoria falls in Zimbabwe and is part of the Shona Tribal people. Our Shona artists are some of the best carvers in the world and use their skills with perfection.
- Ethically & sustainably handcrafted
- Material: Ironwood

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.
