Able to breath out of water, and attributed with mythical powers, the mudfish has been an icon of wealth and divine power in Africa. It's ability to move across land and water symbolized the mudfish's power to move between two realms -- life and death, earthly and spiritual, thus becoming a symbol of the king's divinity. Heady thoughts to contemplate while this set of six soapstone coasters keeps your cups and glasses from making their mark elsewhere. Hand carved by artisans in Kisii Town, Kenya and painted by artisans from tribes throughout Kenya working together in Nairobi.
