Excellent Gift!. . . . .
I purchased this as a gift for my grandmother who loves elephants and has always dreamed of visiting Kenya and Tanzania. I knew she would appreciate the handmade quality and knowing that it was fair-trade. I was also able to show her a picture from the website of one of the artisans carving these exact elephant shelf sitters and she almost cried. It wasn't the same as getting to go to Africa and meet the artisan, but it gave her that history behind the piece that made it more personal. She said this elephant had a whimsical quality to him and she couldn't wait to get him and put him in her library!
