Every sculpture is made from natural stone and vary slightly due to nature of stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stone will contain inclusions, pits or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.

NOTE: Typically your sculpture will ship within 2-3 days after you've placed your order.


Norbert Shamuyarira was born in Chinhoyi, northern Zimbabwe, in 1962.
Having lost his mother when he was only nine years of age and his father leaving the homestead shortly thereafter, was devastating for young Norbert. Not long after that, he also lost his brother, who committed suicide.
He found an outlet for his grief when he began sculpting at the age of 17, after a chance encounter with a very famous Zimbabwean sculptor, Bernard Takawira. His family history has had an insightful influence on his work and his sculptures, which often examine human relationships and personal feelings. He is also known for his amazing sense of humour. His work is in the Atlanta Airport as part of Zimbabwe Sculpture, A Tradition in Stone display.
