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.

Comments about Kenyan Twins Sculpture Pair:

Base is poorly sculpted, item barely stands without falling. Needed considerable sanding to correct.
Despite description, female was actually taller than the male. Makes for an odd couple.
