Hand-Carved Wood Nativity

Swahili Modern

OAK17A

  • Kenyan artist David Kimunya hand-carves this 13-piece African nativity from sustainably sourced jacaranda wood.

    Each one-of-a-kind nativity includes three wise men, two shepherds (one holding a lamb), one angel, three stable animals, a shining star, and the holy family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. The figures feature intricate detailing on their faces and hands while their garments are serenely smooth and display the rich grain of the wood.

    Figures measure approximately 7"H. The star measures 9"H.

  • David Kimunya heads the Kikomba wood carving cooperative in Nairobi. Utilizing the power of numbers, the cooperative procures wood legally for members, ensuring more time can be spent carving. David is famed in Kenya and abroad for his carvings.
