The soapstone bird is a symbol of the ancient city of
Zimbabwe. In addition to architecture, the most famous works
of art are the eight birds carved of soapstone that were found
in its ruins. The birds surmount columns and combine both
human and avian elements, substituting human features like
lips for a beak and five-toed feet for claws. Scholars have
suggested that the birds served as emblems of royal
authority, perhaps representing the ancestors of Great
Zimbabwe's rulers. Although their precise significance is still
unknown, these sculptures remain powerful symbols of rule in
the modern era, adorning the flag of Zimbabwe as national
emblems.
