Compass Soapstone Sculpture
This beautiful piece was hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone, made by African artisans. The natural stone compass is a beautiful piece of art for any table, desk, or bookshelf. Made from dark grey natural soapstone, it blends well with most decor.
The significance of the compass as a metaphoric guiding point is a great reference of strength to support a friend. Great gift for men or women.
- Measures approximately 4-5/8-inches wide x 5-1/4-inches tall x 1-1/2-inches deep.
- 2-piece set. Colors are a lighter grey with natural variations expected from soapstone.
Each sculpture is artfully hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone, found only in the hills of southwestern Kenya. Mining the soapstone from surface hills is a labor-intensive process, using little to no machinery. Laborers works with shovels, picks, axes and machetes to carve out large soapstone chucks, which are then carved into beautiful art.
