This fair trade blue elephant is carved from soapstone, otherwise known as kisii stone. It has its trunk up and is blue with white accents. Since each carving is handmade, the one you receive may vary slightly from the one shown in the image, although it will be very similar. Soapstone is smooth, almost silky to the touch and should be handled with care. Exposure to water or sunlight may alter the color. This soapstone elephant measures about 4" in height to the top of the trunk, and is 2" wide and 1" thick. Handmade in Kenya.
