Embrace Soapstone Sculpture

  • This handcrafted tribute to eternal love depicts two lovers embracing in an endless circle. The sculpture is carved from solid soapstone in Kenya and displays beautiful marbling, with colors ranging from soft beige to deep pink.

    Each polished sculpture is one-of-a-kind and measures 4"x4". The sculpture can also be used as a cake topper at weddings.

  • 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.
