From elegant lost wax bronze figures, to unique stone sculpture, to hand-carved wall decor, this collection contains one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces, handcrafted by artisans in Africa.

$650.00

This substantial elephant sculpture is made from hundreds of discarded flip flops that have been hand-formed, carved, and cemented together by artisans in Kenya.

These statement sculptures are a colorful and eco-friendly way to recycle flip flops that would otherwise litter urban Nairobi or sit in landfills. We work directly with a small co-op of Kenyan artisans who collect, clean and transform foam footwear into bold modern safari art sculptures.

This sculpture is one-of-a-kind and you will receive the elephant shown in these photos. Measures 45" long (tail to tip of trunk); 22" tall (body) and 33" tall (to tip of trunk); and 16" wide. Recommended for indoor display only.

This oversized sculpture ships on a pallet, and extra shipping fees are required. Please scroll down for more information, and email us at info@swahilimodern.com with any questions.

About the Artisans:

In Kenya, artisans convert discarded flip flops into one-of-a-kind art. Operating from a small Nairobi workshop, the dedicated group offers employment and creative opportunities while also keeping flip flop foam out of the landfills.
