How adorable are these elephants? Each miniature sculpture is hand-carved from soft kisii soapstone, then hand-dyed with bright non-toxic dyes. Various colors with multiple designs. Due to the handmade nature, each is unique and will vary. Sold individually.

  • Handmade in Kenya
  • Approximate dimensions: 1.5 in. tall X 2 in. long
Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi, Kenya. The mined soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss. With every product you purchase, you are helping these artisans have employment, educational opportunities and medical care.
