Authenticity Certificate

This kissing elephants figurine was brought to life by artisans in Kenya, using only basic hand tools. To begin, Kisii stone is found in local quarries, cut to size, carefully hand-shaped into these kissing elephants, then polished to a smooth finish. Due to the handcrafted nature of this piece, no two will be exactly alike. Each figurine is 6 inches tall. Handcrafted for Uno Alla Volta from the hearts and hands of the artisans.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
