A variety of animals find home in Zimbabwe, a country blessed with an incredible bounty of natural splendor. Animals are represented as part of sophisticated social customs and beliefs that incorporate animals into the clan relationship of the greater extended family. Acknowledging the family through the use of totems ensures genetic diversity. People recognize the positive qualities of their totem (or mutupo) and never eat or kill the totem animal, thereby showing honor to their family. A sampling of animal carvings available are the zizi (owl), the mvuu (hippo), the dacha (frog), the rwavhi (chameleon), the kamba (tortoise), the twiza (giraffe), and the zhon (elephant).
