Menina Bonita Sandalwood Sculpture
Our Menina Bonita sculpture (Portuguese for pretty girl) is hand carved from beautifully grained sandalwood by artisans in Mozambique.
Designs incorporate the rough inner bark of the sandalwood tree to give each sculpture individuality. This also allows more of the tree to be utilized. A colorfully patterned piece of fabric creates a head wrap and adds contrast to the natural tones of the wood.
