This region of Zimbabwe is the center of an artistic production of Shona people. We can find their incredible sculptures in many regions of southern-Africa. Being in Victoria Falls City we can find thousands of sculptures made in hard rock. I found this huge display, under the sun and at side of the railway. There were many marvelous sculptures, this is only of them.
Esta região de Zimbábue é o centro de produção artística do povo Shona. Suas esculturas fabulosas, feitas de pedra, estão espalhadas por toda a parte no sul do continente africano. Em Victoria Falls City podemos ver milhares destas peças espalhadas pela cidade. Encontrei esta imensa exposição ao ar livre, junto à linha do trem. Ao redor havia muitas lindas peças como esta.

Hi Jorge. if I had seen something like this in Zambia, I would have taken it home as it is more than just a sculpture. To me, the sculptor has captured the spirit of the person, even if he probably carved from memory.Regards. Klaudio.

Hello Dear Jorge,
Your caption as well as article about this image are so nice and informative. Nice choice of this hard black stone sculpture, well maintained composition, sharpness and POV.
Your series of South African photography are really beautiful and an unique idea.
with warm regards and have a nice weekend.

This is very nice sculpture. I wonder if tighter cropping would help.
