Trio of African Animal
Soapstone Eggs

  • This set of 3 solid soapstone eggs are hand-carved, dyed, and hand-etched with African animals and patterns: lion, rhino, and elephant. Often displayed as art, each egg is one-of-a-kind.

    Measures 3.5"H x 2.5"W. Fair trade from Kenya.

  • 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.
