Artists in Zimbabwe, mainly in remote rural areas, create these Meerkat wood sculptures. As indigenous hard woods became increasingly scarce, they focus on developing products made from non-endangered Jacaranda wood. Much care is taken in the carving and finishing of a product, and this same care is extended to the selection, maintenance and delivery of these fabulous one-of-a-kind sculptures. Carved from a single piece, these wood animals are beautifully polished and carefully crafted.
These quirky meerkats have a very human component in their expression and curiosity.
These make great gifts. Everyone loves their fun nature.
