Kenyan artisans carve these animal sculptures from solid soapstone. Each sculpture is polished and dyed by artists in Nairobi, then etched many times over with the word "love."
Each set of six contains an assortment of animals (but at least one of each type). A set of one dozen contains three of each animal. Elephant and Giraffe measures 2"L. Giraffe and Rhino measure 2.75"L.
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. Charles' exacting standards of quality and friendly demeanor make him one of Swahili Modern's most reliable vendors.
