The Makonde people are renowned for their exquisite woodcarvings. Traditionally, Makonde sculptures depict human figures with elongated bodies and intricate facial details. These sculptures may represent individuals, families, or couples engaged in various activities, including romantic or intimate moments. Skilled artisans create these objects from various types of wood such as African sandalwood and African Blackwood native to Eastern Africa.
