    Product Description

    These twin elephants are handcarved from natural soapstone from quarries near Kisii, Kenya.

    Each pair is approximately 4″ tall, 4″ long and 1.5″ wide.

    Each is hand carved and polished.  There will be variations in the final product due to the grain of the natural stone and the fact that each is hand carved.

    Soapstone is mined from quarries in the area surrounding Kisii, Kenya. The mined soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone for the wholesale market, the color of which ranges from cream, to pink, to brown, to yellow, to black, to a marbling of all of them. Once carved, finish craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water, dye, paint or leave natural then polish the piece to a high sheen.

    A purchase through Aina Moja supports the artist and the projects of  Expanding Opportunities, a 501c3 in USA and a registered NGO in Kenya. Follow us on FACEBOOK.
