Canoe Display Unit
Country of Origin: Kenya
Material: Reclaimed hardwood (mangrove)
Description: Striking and beautiful display unit created from an old ngalawa (canoe) that was once used for fishing in the mangroves and sea on the Kenyan coast. This is one of our favourite pieces ever – the personality of this vessel comes through in the faded paintwork and lettering and a lovely old chain that dangles from the top.
Age & Overall Condition: Hardwoods reclaimed from old hardwood canoe, each piece individually treated by Tribal Gallery carpenters in Kenya. Each piece of wood carries traces of its past life as a working canoe – holes in the wood where there were once nails for example. The wood has been lovingly transformed by hand and will be enjoyed for decades.
