Interesting article regarding the Abagusii tribespeople from the village of Tabaka in Kisii, Kenya, who are paid six times their normal rate to carve Simpsons busts in various states of repose and action:

Telling quote by one woman:
Quote:

"I don't know who they are," she says about the dysfunctional cartoon family.

"But I like them because I earn from them."

They are marvellous.
I wonder if the "super safari" lad could stop off to collect some on his way to Mt Elgon... Very Happy

Ahhh, soapstone carving, a few months ago, I was in the process of making a fake soapstone carving website, in the hope of getting lads to carve me some stuff out of it, but after a bit of research, there does not appear to be a lot of soapstone or soapstone carving in Nigeria, so I knocked the idea on the head.

SP, Carving Soapstone is too easy. Think Lapidary/Petra Duro It's a bugg3r to restore. Mad
