You can find sculptures and art craft produced by Shona people in any place in southern Africa, but being in Zimbabwe you are in the central area of this productions. You can find many kinds of art craft, some pieces has the same basic shape, some are largest and others are fantastic and creative, most of them made in stone. In Victoria Falls City it is difficult to find a piece to buy, not because they are bad, but because there are so many options and it is difficult to decide and ate same time, to negotiate with the locals. I gave my Uruguayan cap and get a discount to buy a sculpture.
Você pode encontrar artesanato do povo Shona em qualquer canto do sul africano, mas estando em Zimbábue você se encontra no centro da produção. Estando ali as opções são variadas e vão desde peças com um desenho padronizado até peças criativas e maravilhosas,desde as pequenas até as grandes, a maioria em pedra.
Estando na cidade de Victoria Falls é difícil se decidir entre tanta variedade.O ato de negociar com o pessoal da terra é ainda pior. No meu caso deixei com eles meu boné uruguaio que virou moeda de desconto na compra de uma peça.

You are right, it is difficult to choose. Of course, the size of your suitcase and the weight allowance of your airline might help you with the choice!
Very nice close up of the beautiful pieces of sculpture.
