Today their descendants remain in the region, using the same tools and methods to achieve intricate soapstone carvings and inlay for beautiful sculptures and decorative pieces.

  • Boxed set of two palewa stone shakers with etched and copper-painted stripes
  • Shakers are 1.5D x 3.5H
  • One shaker has 5 holes and 5 copper stripes, the other has 3 holes and 3 copper stripes
