Across the world, artisans carve the wood native to the area in which they live; what they make varies depending on the maker and their circumstances. Utilitarian objects such as a spoon, a tray or a bowl can be carved, as can artistic or sacred objects such as statuary. The inspiration for these candlesticks however was a base for a balancing toy, one made purely for play and to bring joy. The original inspiration piece comes from Kenya, Africa and is the collections of the Museum of International Folk Art.
