    Story Behind the Art:
    This piece is carved by the artists of SMOLArt a group of artists who live in the rural village of Tabaka, Kenya, the heart of soapstone crafts. The name, a shortened version of Small, Medium, and Large Artists, refers to the size of the wholesale soapstone products the artisans make, not their stature. Established in 1990, SMOLArt is a member of the WFTO, and as such assures that the artisans are paid a fair price for their work. In addition, the organization support community development by contributing to projects that improve living conditions, education, and health of their members and the village at large.

    What is Worldstock?

    • Just for fun

      Bought this just for fun as a gift for my friend who has everything and loves to travel. She loved it and named him Oscar. It is just adorable and nicely made. I like to support artisans who create by hand.
