  • Our beautifully simple cow bone holder is carved to resemble the spiraling horns of various savanna antelopes, like the topi, gazelle and waterbuck. Together with six delicate cow bone cocktail picks add simple African style to the table.

    The cow bone has been boiled and polished.

  • Kenyans love roasted meat, be it beef, chicken or goat, and some Kenyan nomadic societies center life around the ownership of cattle. Kenyan butchers are happy to have eager hands to take useless bones off their hands, so they sell these unexpected craft materials to artisans for a small pittance. Talented Kenyan craftspeople utilize cow bones to create bold adornments that beautifully represent the nation's appreciation for cattle.
