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.
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.
We placed the item on our bedroom dresser and looks "beautiful"
Very nice.. thank you
However there were several pin holes, no big deal but with the soapstone being so light in color the "black" pinholes stand out, but I'll putty the holes and that will take care of that
I ordererd this statue for my husband as a gift to celebrate our third year anniversary. It is very true to the photo and the quality is excellent. It arrived just in time. Very good service with Overstock!
