York’s Shona Gallery presents “Family.” “Family” is an elegant, graceful expression of the family unit for the Shona peoples of Zimbabwe.
At the base of the piece are two children, nestled side-by-side in one cavity of exposed, polished spring stone. Above the two children are maternal and paternal figures of the family, each with their own cavity in the sculpture.
“Family” captures the beauty of a stone inherent to the natural landscape of Zimbabwe, spring stone. This piece showcases raw, untouched stone juxtaposed with polished, carved stone. What is also captured in this work is the color variety of spring stone – black, white, gray, and orange.

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.
