These are an Namilegs.com specialty collector product. Our African Art walking canes are all hand-crafted from either sese wood or Kenyan mvuli wood. Sese is more lightweight, but both are ideal for walking canes. Their unique carvings and colorings make them truly unique. Whether purchased strictly for decoration or for a functional purpose, these canes are truly a worthy investment. If you are looking to bring an infusion of Africa into your living environment, this is an ideal way to do it.
The beauty of ebony
Many of our African Art wood sculptures are made of ebony. Surprisingly, this small tree is in the same genus as the persimmon. Primarily found in the tropics, ebony wood has been valued since ancient times. It is hard and dark, and varies from deep black to dark red, among other colors. It can also be striped with black or shades of brown. These variations are evident in our selection of wood sculptures. Moisture, mineral content of the soil, and the age of the tree are some of the factors that determine coloration. Darker ebony is generally found at higher altitudes and from older trees. This is one of the reasons ebony is a scarce and costly wood, and wood sculptures made from it are truly special and one-of-a-kind. We hope you find the exact nuance of shade you are seeking at Namilegs.com.
