Baby Elephant Soapstone Dish

This versatile plate passes through several sets of talented hands to reach its final form, starting with careful hand-carving by Gusii artisans in the Kissii District (the highlands of western Kenya) and ending with hand-dyeing and hand-etching by Nairobi artists. The baby elephant's drawn lines and the plate's vibrant coloration make this a wonderful display piece or desktop accessory. Intricate designs on the plate's border also add a lively touch.
