African Soapstone Holy Family

Sold Out

  • This hand-carved African sculpture depicts Mary and Joseph in a cradling position. The sculpture is created using solid soapstone in Kenya and 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.
