African Kisii Stone Giraffe Box

Special Price $9.99 Regular Price $48.00
Near the shore of Lake Victoria, Kenyan artisans transform local kisii stone, or soapstone, into this oval-shaped giraffe box. The African artisans use a panga or broad-blade knife to hand-carve the stone, then sand and polish each piece to a smooth luster. To finish, each kisii stone box is engraved with a giraffe scene and painted with handmade dyes to achieve the unique colors and designs. No two pieces will be exactly alike. Approximately 4 inches by 3 inches.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
