SOAPSTONE DECORATED ELEPHANT
Carved from soapstone in Western Kenya, this elephant is like none found in nature but seeing one of these with its brilliant colors and whimsical shape can surely act as a close substitute to seeing one in the wild. Colors will vary. Each elephant is approximately 2.5 to 3 inches in length. Sold individually. Specify any preferences in the Preferences box, indicating if substitutions are acceptable
Meet The Artisans
Our Soapstone 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 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.
