Hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone by African artisans, the outstretched arms of parents and children hold onto one another in love and connectivity. These beautiful soapstone sculptures personify the timeless strength of the family bond.
Story Behind the Art:
Each sculpture is artfully hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone, found only in the hills of southwestern Kenya. Mining the soapstone from surface hills is a labor-intensive process, using little to no machinery. Laborers works with shovels, picks, axes and machetes to carve out large soapstone chucks, which are then carved into beautiful art.
