They are called Kisii stone, named after the Kisii tribe of Tabaka Hills in Western Kenya who use them for domestic use and more recently for Hand made carvings for export due to their excellent craftsmanship. Soapstone is found in the Kisii district of Kenya.
The carversused to make mostly wild animalfigurines, but more recently have started creating contemporary abstracts, candle holders, bookends, domestic pet figurines like cats and dogs to name a few.
The soapstone is first immersed into water so that it is easier to mold and carve. Once the stone is dry it will stay in its solid form. Color is used to give a brighter look and is added on to some of the carvings. The cool soft touch ofKisii isunparalleled to any other stone in the world.
