The art movement was known as "Shona Sculpture" in the beginning; however, it has matured into an art movement where sculptors from many countries are now working in Zimbabwe. The sculptures may follow many themes or forms; the themes can be African, realistic, metamorphic or spiritual. The new generation of artists' sculptures are mainly abstract and realistic. It should be remembered that sculpting in this manner means this form of art is the only movement left in the world where stone sculpture is created using only a hammer and chisel. The stones are known as springstone, opaline, verdite, serpentine and other amazing beautifully coloured stones.
