In Zimbabwe, where history meets art, A warrior stands, sculpted in green verdite. His chiseled form, a masterpiece apart, With wonderful precision, a great work in sight.

His eyes, focused, his stance, defensive, As if he's protecting ""Great Zimbabwe"". His muscles flexed, his spear, offensive, A symbol of strength and courage, as we know.

The verdite, a stone of great worth, Has been transformed into a work of art. A tribute to the land that gave it birth, And to the people who play their part.

In Zimbabwe, where the past and present meet, This warrior stands, a symbol of power and defeat. His sculpted form, a testament to skill and art, And a reminder of the strength within every heart.
