Shona Thinker Statue Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This Stone Thinker statue is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. In African culture, the ability to think instead of reacting is essential for the role of Kingship. This is why the thinker statue has become so popular in African artwork. Taken from the famous Auguste Rodin sculpture, The Thinker is depicted as a man in sober meditation battling with a powerful internal struggle. The unique pose with hand to the chin, right elbow to the left knee, and crouching position allows the statue to survey the work with a contemplative attitude. This piece is hand-carved in Zimbabwe.
