Print Story Card


Happy hippo is sculpted by Kenyan artisans from kisii soapstone, sanded, colored and waxed to a rich, dark sheen. Kisii stone, found only in Kenya, is a soft stone that is easy to carve into many forms. Its satiny finish is achieved through multiple stages of sanding, followed by waxing. In some cases, as with this piece, artisans also apply color.
