Zimbabwe is especially known for many kinds of pictures taken there. Often the modern African art but there are still many traditional makers eg create images in the style Kishi. Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia and Southern Rhodesia), officially the Republic of Zimbabwe is a country in Africa which borders Zambia, Mozambique, South Africa and Botswana. Hunters from the Iron Age, related to the Khoisan, inhabited the area 5,000 years ago or earlier. They depict scenes of life in petroglyphs throughout Zimbabwe; these are known as Bushman paintings. In about 300 AD. Chr. Bantu-speaking peoples began migrating to this region, and to displace the previously existing hunters. Among these Bantu were the ancestors of the Shona. The ruins of Great Zimbabwe (probably a Shona speaking empire) testify. Today are the Shona approximately four fifths of the total population. Coupled with the emergence of contacts with Muslim merchants on the coast of the Indian Ocean around the 10th century Great Zimbabwe began to develop in the 11th century. This state traded gold, ivory and copper include textiles, glass and ceramics. In the mid 15th century, the Shona empire disintegrated. During a troubled period in Southern Africa, known as Mfecane, passed under the leadership of Mzilikazi of the Ndebele (also called Matabele) in 1834 from the current South Africa in today's Zimbabwe. The Matabele were originally part of the Zulu empire of Shaka. In the current Zimbabwe they fought among others from the Shona and eventually formed an empire that is now called Matabeleland. During the migration and conflict, many local clans and individuals absorbed into the realm of the Ndebele. The Sindebele became the lingua franca. They did have a lower social status than the Ndebele.
