Set of 3 Gray Natural Soapstone African Animals

Swahili Modern


  • Hand carved and polished to a smooth finish, this set of 3 sweet African animals showcases the beautiful grain and varied coloration of natural gray soapstone. Although colors are predominantly gray, this is completely natural soapstone with NO dyeing so each piece could display a wide variation in color and grain than photos - with veining, lighter or darker gray, and even some brown and pink tones but each will be lovely. Additional color swatches are shown as examples.

    Sizes: [Elephant] 3.5"L x 1.5"W x 2"T; [Rhino] 4"L x 1.5"W x 2"T; [Hippo)] 3"L x 2"W x 2"T. Size may vary slightly. 

  • 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. Charle's exacting standards of quality and friendly demeanor make him one of Swahili Modern's most reliable vendors.
