Shona Stone

Contented Readers Springstone Sculptures Set of 2

Swahili Modern


  • This set of two boys reading--one one his stomach and one reclining on his back--is handmade in Zimbabwe by Sculptor Luke Jimu. Zimu hand-carves and textures springstone, then combines it with recycled metal to create a serene line of people figures.

    Reader on Back measures 6"L x 2"W x 2"T. Reader on Stomach measures 6"L x 1.5"W x 2.75"T. Size may vary slightly. 

  • Zimbabwean artist Luke Jimu works with springstone, which is a prized dark stone that polishes to a high shine because of its density. Most springstone is sustainably sourced and is mined on communal lands for the purpose of sculpting.
