Story Behind the Art:
Many Tribes in Africa believe that each piece taken from a tree contains part of its spirit and should be treated with respect. These carvings originate from a village called Machakos in Kenya. Akamba tribesmen who produce these carvings use a knife and bladed tools for carving only. A rough file and sandpaper is used to finish these pieces. No electrical tools are used. These carvings provide a livelihood for the tribes who often have no other source of income.

  • Giraffe and baby

    I have purchased this twice as gifts. The first was sent directly to them so I did not see for myself. The second time it was sent to my home to give as a Christmas gift. It is well made and a very nice size. The price was also excellent. Would definitely recommend.
