Pair of Large Hand-Etched Soapstone Eggs

  • These unique eggs are hand-carved from solid soapstone in Western Kenya, then beautifully etched and detailed by artists in Nairobi. Each 3"H egg displays hundreds of small markings and lines.

    Often given as Easter gifts, the eggs are a symbolic gift that can be enjoyed all year long. 

  • 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.
