Seller: hoosier_mama_gto (399) 100%, Location: Marion, Indiana, Ships to: US, Item: 292817310867 You are looking at a previously owned and highly sought after, solid natural gray Dolomite stone that has been carefully hand carved and made into an African hippopotamus, it is signed “Nyasha” (the artist who carved this piece) on its back and is from Zimbabwe. This African art form is known as Shona sculpture because it is carved by the Shona people of Zimbabwe. The Shona sculptures are unique to Zimbabwe and the Shona have been perfecting this art form for nearly a thousand years, they love to celebrate the hippo by carving such beautiful pieces as this one, which is very nice. Each sculpture is unique to the carver’s hands, as well as to the natural patterns in the stone formed many millions of years ago. The streaks of white are common to Dolomite and this one has tiny rich red iron deposits. It is 1 11/16” tall x 3” long x 2” wide (nose to back) and weighs 6 ounces before packaging for shipping. FYI ~ Nyasha is a Zimbabwe name of Shona origin, it is a name given to a baby girl, it means “mercy, grace of God”. USPS First Class Mail Shipping ~ Sorry, NO international shipping ~ I only ship to the lower 48 states and only to confirmed PayPal addresses. I ship within one business day of auctions’ end. I will leave feedback only after the buyer is satisfied with the item and transaction. Have questions? Feel free to ask me. :) Thank you for looking! God Bless you. God Bless America!
