Swahili Modern


  • This serene sculpture, carved from African soapstone, is a beautiful portrayal of Joseph, Mary, and the Christ child.

    Size: 2.5"L x 2"W x 6.5"T.

  • At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity bring raw soapstone to life 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.
