About the Maker

Wood carving in Kenya provides valuable income to many people in local communities where paid employment can be very scarce.

In the Neem Machakos district, south east of Nairobi, olive wood is being used in place of traditional timbers such as mahogany & ebony in a bid to aid in the reforestation of these timbers.
