These little stone sculptures have been carved in Kiisi in Kenya for over 60 years. Kiisi stone is soft and varies in colour from white to rose and even grey. Carvers work in small groups with each group specialising in certain carvings. The carvings are then polished and dyed in vibrant colours and beautiful etchings inscribed in them by skilled teams of artisans. The hearts are approx 4 cm at their widest.
