Brand Partner Bio
I hail from the carving community of Akamba and I was fortunate enough to be born in the village from which the art of woodcarving originated in Kenya. I learned the art of carving as a young man from my fathers, neighbors, uncles, and peers until I mastered it.
Today, I am a master carver of the Maasai warriors or 'Morans' in their various well-known postures, such as the kneeling position. From time to time, I also carve gigantic animals such as rhinos, elephants, and giraffes. I also make wooden bookends, a manifestation of the inclusion of modernity in a traditional setting.
