Wedding Knot Sculptures | Soapstone
• Large approx 4" L x 3" W x 7" H
• Hand-carved Kisii soapstone
• Certified Fair Trade
The wedding knot is a fair trade product handmade in Kenya.
It is hand carved out of one piece of soapstone, sanded until smooth, and then polished (white) or dyed black.
Since white soapstone shows the natural colors, some color variations should be expected. One can often see shades of cream, gray, pink, and brown.
The two loops of the wedding knot stand for a couple that has become joined through marriage, but remain two individual people.
The sculpture is given to a couple on their wedding day with a blessing: "May the union last as long as the stone from which the sculpture is carved."
