Scholar Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This Recycled Metal and Stone Scholar sculpture is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. The sculptor Luke Jimu hand-carves and textures springstone, then combines it with recycled metal to create a serene line of people figures. This stylish sculpture makes a thoughtful gift for the student/scholar or graduate in your life. The Zimbabwean artist Luke Jimu works with springstone, which is a prized dark stone that polishes to a high shine because of its density. Most springstone is sustainably sourced and is mined on communal lands for the purpose of sculpting.
