This versatile plate passes through several sets of talented hands to reach its final form, staring with careful hand-carving by Gusii artistans in western Kenya and ending with hand-dying and hand-etching by Nairobi artists.

The elephant's beautifully drawn lines and the plate's vibrant coloration make this a wonderful display piece or desktop accessory. Intricate designs on the plate's border also add a lively touch.

Sold singly.
