Hand-Painted Wood Reading Safari Animal Sculptures

Swahili Modern


  • These delightful sculptures are carved from a single piece of wood, then hand-painted with detailed coat patterns, facial features, and hooves.

    Each animal ponders a book that contains a hand-written alphabet. The sculptures measure 10"H and make wonderful gifts for teachers, readers, and young children learning their ABCs.

    Fair trade from Kenya.

  • The Kikomba Wood Carving Cooperative in Nairobi consists of both young and old men who practice woodworking and painting in a open-air workshop. This environmentally responsible group takes great care to legally procure all types of African wood used in their products, and the group is known for their impressive craftsmanship and attention to detail.
