"The description of the product says "32 delicate pieces"...does this mean they are fragile and/or will break easily?"
It's Handmade and came with the info from the person who made it in Kenya a nice conversation piece. It is really heavy and nice and smooth matches my decor just right...

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.
