Family Unity Sandalwood Sculptures

Swahili Modern


  • A single piece of sandalwood is transformed into a one-of-a-kind sculpture featuring a unified father, mother, and child. Beautifully symbolic of the power of family, these Mozambican sculptures are naturally fragrant and incorporate the bark of the sandalwood tree.

    The mother's head is tied with an African print scarf while the father's head is etched and dyed to resemble hair. Graceful facial features make each statue unique.

    The medium statue measures 11.5" T and the large statue measures 15.5" T. Scarves and facial expressions may vary.

  • GreenArte is a talented and diverse pool of Mozambican wood carvers who specialize in creating figures, boxes, dishes and jewelry from sustainably sourced mpingo, sandalwood, pau ferro and cimbirre. Their focus is on using environmentally-sound materials and furthering artistic advancement in Mozambique.
