African Sculptures

Christmas Stone Sculpture

Well Christmas has come and gone and a wonderful time was had by all my family. We came together at my brother’s country lodge one Christmas day and all of us helped with the preparations.

All working together makes things easier and time seems to fly by when working and catching up old new and a little gossip. Leaving plenty of time to enjoy Christmas dinner together and just chill in my brother’s big old comfy chairs.

Shona Sculpture

Then it was time for presents to be opened. I have a tough time choosing presents for my brother and his wife, so I search the internet for ideas. I came across this site Shona Sculpture And I thought “why not?”

The present I bought was a sculpture, A stone sculpture from Africa. Zimbabwe to be precise. It’s a mother and child arrangement and it’s so appealing. Because it’s something that can be put in the garden as well.

Well I’m pleased to say my brother and his wife simply loved it. I was so pleased. Pleased that I’d found something that they really both liked.

Time for a Stone Sculpture for me

I really liked it too, so I’ve asked my partner to go to the same place (Stone garden Sculpture) And get one for my birthday, which in a few months time. However I’ll do the choosing and he can do the paying (need to get our priorities sorted out of course)

I already know what I want and where it will go. In the garden on the patio in between our two acer trees. And I know roughly the color stone I want out to be, something greenish brown. Subject matter, well that’s easy an animal form would work best for me.
