Tuzmo: David Kitule
These Maasai Moran sculptures are hand created by a master carver using rosewood. The carver learnt his art from an early age. Choose one large sculpture and one small sculpture from this talented Kenyan artist whilst supporting a local community. A great addition to your home or an original present for friends.
The Maasai Moran Sculptures are carved from rosewood, an indigenous Kenyan hardwood tree. This wood ensures the high quality of the sculpture and its long-lasting appeal. The artisan usually prefers to carve the kneeling posture since this was a common position for the Maasai warriors. It gave them a wide field of view without attracting attention. It was also considered a resting posture for the young and energetic either on the battlefield or when herding. You will receive one large and one medium size sculpture. There are 3 available designs to choose from which are:
- Old Maasai Man
- Kneeling Maasai Warrior
- Maasai Woman
Large Size: 25W x 62H

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.
