Sorry about the lack of a Monday Rambles for this week. I'll be sure to have one for nest week. Last week was sooooooo busy that I just did not have time to take notes like I usually do for that post. This week should be much calmer.
In the meantime, maybe you can help me with a mystery. What are these?
They're made out of stone and very heavy. The question is, why would anyone make noses out of stone? What are they supposed to represent?
I thought they might be some kind of tiki thing, but they're marked "Made in Kenya" on the bottom. I don't recall a tiki tradition in Kenya. Googling "Kenya stone noses" gets me nowhere. "Kenya stone carvings" brings up a lot of sites, but I can't find a match and much of it is soapstone, which this most definitely is not.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
