Hand carved from soft soapstone by Gusii artisans in western Kenya, these soapstone hearts boast a rich medley of red, purple, pink and blue tones.
Each heart measures 1.5"L x 1.5"W x 1"T and feels "chubby" when held in the hand.
Bosma's father once owned a thriving workshop in downtown Nairobi, and he taught Bosma the crafts of woodworking and carving soapstone. Following in his footsteps, Bosma and his sister Pamela continue to produce artworks of various mediums and also help other Kenyan craftspeople to export their works.
