PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Maasai Giraffe is the most distinctive and visually-striking species of this gentle giant animal, with distinctive red jagged marks on its skin from head to hooves. Known as ‘twiga’ in Swahili, the various communities of the Maasai Mara have peacefully coexisted with the twiga for centuries. In early cave paintings and drawings across the Continent, giraffes are often depicted in high regard, showing the cultural importance given to these animals.

This bowl set is hand-carved from Tanzanian mahogany and painted by local craftsmen in the style of the twiga’s distinctive jagged red marks. Ideal for a dinner party – perhaps serving the main course to share in this large bowl – this bowl brings some colourful Tanzanian flair to your tabletop!

*Please note that the size and location of the patterns may vary on each piece, as they are hand-made.

Juego de cuencos Masái tallados a mano en madera de caoba

En tu próxima cena con invitados, marca las diferencias con este bol grande inspirado en jirafas.

La jirafa Masai es la especie más característica y más visualmente llamativa de este noble animal de enorme tamaño, con sus distintivas marcas rojas puntiagudas que cubren toda su piel desde la cabeza a las pezuñas. Conocidas como ‘twiga’ en el idioma suajili, las varias comunidades de Masái Mara han coexistido con las twiga pacíficamente durante siglos. En pinturas y dibujos primitivos halladas en cavernas a lo largo del continente africano, las jirafas son a menudo representadas con gran consideración, mostrando la importancia cultural que se les da a estos animales.

Este cuenco está tallado a mano en madera de caoba de Tanzania, y pintado por artesanos locales con un estilo inspirado en las manchas rojas puntiagudas de las twiga. Ideal para una cena de invitados, apropiado para servir una sopa o un plato principal en este cuenco, te traerá a tu mesa el original arte tanzano!

* Tenga en cuenta que el tamaño y la ubicación de los patrones pueden variar en cada pieza ya que están hechos a mano.
