This is a lovely African Soapstone Plate that is hand carved out of natural soapstone from Kenya. After being carved they are painted and finally etched and grooved to produce the final product. These plates show great talent and can stand alone as a decorative ornament. The stone is named after the Kisii people of the Tabaka Hills in western Kenya and the only place it is found in the region. The soapstone is a metamorphic rock that consists of the mineral talc. Also commonly referred to as steatite, it is known for being soft and easy to work with. While the stone was primarily used for domestic purposes such as basketry and pottery, it is now used to create unique handmade carvings. This would be a wonderful sculpture to adorn your home or collection.
