Holiday Sculptures and Art

African Soapstone Guardian Angel and Child

Swahili Modern


  • What a beautiful rendition of an angel, cradling the Christ Child, in hand-carved Kenyan soapstone which displays natural marbling, with colors ranging from beige to soft pink.

    Each polished sculpture is one-of-a-kind and measures 2.25"L x 1.25"W x 4"T. 

  • At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity transform raw soapstone by using non-toxic synthetic dyes under the leadership of Charles Ndibe. Charle's exacting standards of quality and friendly demeanor make him one of Swahili Modern's most reliable vendors.
