    Story Behind the Art:
    SMOLArt is 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 products the artisans make, not their stature. Established in 1990, SMOLArt is a member of WFTO the World Fair Trade Association, and as such assures that the artisans are paid a fair price for their work. In addition the organization supports community development by contributing to projects that improve living conditions, education and health of their members and the village at large. Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi Kenya. The mined stone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone the color of which ranges from cream to pink to brown to yellow to black to a marbling of all of them.

    This statue is a beatiful depiction of two parents and three children. The color is warm without too much yellow undertones. I love how smooth the statue feels, and I imagine the hands that made this statue did so with care.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color of my statue is light brown/tan with cream.
