Set of Four Batik Fish Spoons

Swahili Modern

AE14

  • These unique spoons, hand-carved by Kenyan artisans from bleached cow bone, bring a fun addition to the table.

    The cow bone is boiled and polished. The patterned bone is created by using wax batik method that turns the bone to a rich brown-black hue.

    Size: 3.5"L x 1.25"W. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur.

  • Kenyans love roasted meat, be it beef, chicken or goat, and some Kenyan nomadic societies center life around the ownership of cattle. Kenyan butchers are happy to have eager hands to take useless bones off their hands, so they sell these unexpected craft materials to artisans for a small pittance. Talented Kenyan craftspeople utilize cow bones to create bold adornments that beautifully represent the nation's appreciation for cattle.
