Extra Large Serpentine Double Hippo Dish

Swahili Modern


  • Carving from serpentine, Zimbabwea stone sculptor Emmanual Mabika creates this beautiful large dish, centering around two floating hippos. It showcases the beauty of this locally-sourced dark stone through both textured and polished surfaces. Large enough for a bird bath or other decorative purposes.

    Because this is a handcrafted item, each bowl has a unique size, shape and position of floating hippos.

    Measures approximately 14-15"L x 10"W x 5"T (size and shape will vary). 

  • Emmanual Mabika uses his talent to carve beautiful items from serpentine stone. Found in many deposits throughout Zimbabwe, its colors vary from black to brown to green, orange and variegated. Sculptors choose deposits of rock that are hard and therefore very durable.
