This is a lovely African Soapstone Abstract Figure Carving called "Ukama" or family Tree from Kenya. 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 or home or collection.
