Authenticity Certificate

Six majestic African animals encircle the rim of this dramatic serving piece, meticulously hand-carved out of native jacaranda wood by Akamba tribesmen in Mombasa, Kenya, each a master at his craft. Once carved, the wood is sanded to a smooth finish and hand-painted with natural colored dyes. A clear wax hand-finish gives shine and character to each piece. Recommended for use with dry snacks only, such as whole fruits or nuts. No two are exactly alike. Some bowls may not have a patterned rim. Approx 12 in. x 7 in. x 4 in.

Akamba Tribesman David

David, a member of the Akamba tribe in Mombasa, Kenya, collects fallen jacaranda wood and uses it to create decorative pieces for the home. Using only hand tools, he carves the wood, sands it, and uses natural colored dyes to stain it in a style that reflects the beauty of his native land.
