The Kikuyu people live in the shadow of Mt. Kenya—known locally as Kirinyaga—the earthly resting place of the Kikuyu creator Ngai. In this striking piece, two figures, male and female, are carved from a single piece of solid wood, representing the Kikuyu’s traditional vision of fertility, wealth, and health. These bold figurines suggest the interconnected nature of the visible and invisible forces of the Kikuyu belief system. Each pair is handmade by female artisans working in a community-based organization dedicated to fair trade practices, sustainable livelihoods, and economic empowerment for the rural women of the Kikuyu tribe.


Hand-carved in Kenya. Wood. Male: 9"H x 3"W x 1"D; female: 8"H x 3"W x 1 1/8"D.

Shona art, created by Zimbabwe's largest tribe, is one of the most significant art forms to come out of Africa in the 20th century. Family relationships, such as this pair, are often represented by the animal kingdom in Shona art. The artists believe that their chiseling and polishing releases the spirit form that is trapped within the rapoka stone.

Shona is a 20th-century name given to a number of related ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. They speak similar dialects of a standardized Shona language, and many trace their ancestry back to the 12th-century capital city of Great Zimbabwe, whose ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today’s Shona stone carvers draw inspiration from those ancient builders and speak of releasing the spirit trapped in stone as they carve and polish with hand tools. Each handmade sculpture is unique, as is the raw, hand-quarried soapstone it emerged from; please accept variations.

Joseph Mengele—the escaped Nazi war criminal and SS physician known as the "Angel of Death"—spent years doing bizarre medical experiments on twins at Auschwitz, working to determine if twins held the key to building a blonde-haired, blue-eyed master race for Adolf Hitler. Now a historian says he has evidence that Mengele's attempts may not have ended at Auschwitz and that his obsession to engineer an Aryan master race continued in South America. Deep in the Brazilian outback, a tiny town exists with reportedly some 44 pairs of twins, maybe blonde and blue-eyed. Could they be the product of Mengele's machinations?
