African Symbol Elephant Sculptures

Sold Out

  • Hand-carved from soapstone in Western Kenya, these richly hued sculptures feature symbolic line drawings against a smooth body. A long trunk and protruding ears add eye-catching silhouettes to each elephant.

    Each sculpture is dyed with food-safe dyes and is one-of-kind. Measures 5.5"L x 2.5"W x 3"T. Designs will vary slightly. Fair trade.

  • 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.
