|Title||Shona Stone Mother and Child Zimbabwe African Art|
|Type of Object||Stone sculpture|
|Country of Origin||Zimbabwe|
|Materials||Carved, polished stone|
Additional Information: All Shona sculpture was made after 1965. Frank McEwan, an Englishman, who was director of the Rhodes National Gallerey in what was then Southern Rhodesia, began a school in 1956, and in 1965 encouraged the students, who had been painting, to move to stone. I have a huge collection of Shona pieces in rapocco, green and black serpentine, leopard rock, and verdite--some are four feet tall!
