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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

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.Read More
