Mother and Baby Penguin Ornament

This heart-melting mother and baby penguin ornament is nothing short of adorable

The bond between parent and child is formed as the mother penguin bows her head to see the adorable face of her baby gazing back up at her

Expertly carved by skilled Kenyan artisans

Soapstone is the name given to rocks that contain a high amount of talc. It is also known as soap rock or steatite

Most of the worlds soapstone originates from Kisii in the western highlands of Kenya and so is home to the best soapstone artisans and carvers

Before starting work the stone must be immersed in water to make it softer and therefore easier to work with. Using a hammer and chisel the main shape is carved out and colour then added. A smaller knife, known as a kisu, is then used for the engraved design or illustration

Soapstone is believed to have calming properties that can help a person adapt and cope with change

It is associated with the Root Chakra, the number 7, the zodiac sign Sagittarius, and the element Air

These items are carved and painted by hand so the one you receive could differ slightly from the pictures shown
