York's Shona Gallery presents "Swan" by Zimbabwean artist Kanse. The piece is hand carved out of one piece of serpentine stone, allowing for the contrast of the raw stone with the polished and sanded stone. "Swan" is both suitable for indoor and outdoor environments, and does not tarnish or deteriorate in rain or snow.
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.
HeritageYork's Shona Gallery was the first gallery that brought Shona art to the United States.
