Story Behind the Art:
Kenya's western highlands contain vast deposits of the metamorphic stone called steatite. Known widely as soapstone, this talc-like stone has a smooth, almost soapy-feeling texture that carves easily. Soapstone is found in various locales around the world, but since the Kenyan variety is mined mainly from the Tabaka Hills in the Kisii District, it is known specifically as Kisii stone. The Abagusii, or Gusii, are the predominant residents of the Kisii District, which is one of Kenya's most populated regions.Mining the stone is the most arduous part of the process. Men use large machete-style knives called pangas to divide chunks of the stone away from the main vein and to portion off appropriately sized pieces for carving. The finer carving is accomplished with a small knife called a kisu, and then the carvings are washed down in a slurry of sand and water to fully smooth the surfaces in preparation for dyeing.
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.
