These delicate African ornaments are handmade from natural plant fibers in Kenya. Each angel wears a gown of white sisal strands and floats with wings carved from banana leaves.
Often hung in the home to convey blessings, the angels are a symbol of peace and love for all who behold them. Each angel measures 4.5"T x 3.5"L.

Esther heads up a small group of talented individuals with a penchant for creating collectible works of folk art using this sustainable, all-natural medium.
