Verdite Rhino - Small
L:13.5" W:5" H:6"
Sometimes referred to as “Africa’s green gold,” Verdite is a semi-precious stone only found in the southern part of the continent. It is a very hard stone, which allows Shona artists to achieve high detail in their carvings. These sculptors never attended any formal art institution. The realism and accuracy of the human form is instead attained from experience and persistence.
