In the language of Zimbabwe’s Shona people, Mbare (pronounced: "im-bah-ree") means “gathering of things” or “marketplace”—which is what your home is bound to become when you get a load of these wonderful wares. The Painted Tin Hippo is made in Zimbabwe by the Mkankha Brothers, who create colorful sculptures depicting Africa’s diverse zoological population from recycled tin cans and industrial scraps. Help Mbare support a sustainable living for African artisans by letting this culturally rich creature into your life.
