Hand carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone by African artisans, the legend of the circle of friends has a long history. It is said that when you give the statue to a friend, it will solidify your bond with that person for the rest of your lives.

This also serves as a comfort gift to someone going through a difficult time, or suffering from a loss. It is a reminder that those around you offer support.
