The Makonde are famous worldwide for their delicate carvings and the utmost skill they show in their work. The medium skeleton Makonde carving is the type where the artisan chooses to make the figure extremely thin. This is no easy task, as it requires the craftsman to get the perfect balance in order for the piece to stand. This is the artist's representation of a Makonde woman carrying water. Consider placing the lovely design in a glass-door cabinet so that it is noticeable by all.
