More of the Story: My very last day in Nairobi I found this piece (along with other beauties) at a Masai market near central Nairobi. The artist that made it is named, Samuel. He creates remarkable and unique pieces that were unlike any I had seen the rest of my time in Kenya. In his workshop in Nairobi, he also teaches students the art of African jewelry making.
**Of the additional two pictures, on is a glimpse of the Masai market in Nairobi where I found this piece and its artisan, Samuel. The second is one I took while on safari in Kenya. The animals are really this close!
