York’s Shona Gallery is proud to present “Bunny” by Fungai Mwarowa. “Bunny” is one of the very few sculptures in the Shona stone sculpture repertoire made of lepidolite, a stone known for being very difficult to carve into. For Mwarowa, however, stone holds no barriers. Mwarowa has proclaimed he is uniquely gifted and can work on any stone no matter how difficult it is known to be. Mwarowa shows off his talent by creating unique, imaginative creatures often imbued with human characteristics, as displayed in “Bunny.” There is only one piece available for one lucky customer.
What is Shona? The best of Zimbabwe stone sculpture combines the splendor and solidity of the stone medium with imagery drawn from reality and abstracted into symbolic form. Figures and features that are reminiscent of, yet not quite like, animal, and human forms suggest the creatures and mythological beings that inhabit the realms of the religions and folklore of the Zimbabwean people.
Heritage York's Shona Gallery was the first gallery that brought Shona art to the United States.
