The roughest places seem to have an incredible abundance of artists. Go figure. These adorable pens make great gifts for anyone; children, teens or adults, men or women - they are just lovely to use and decorative on the desk.
Also check out the Couple Pen Holder, also from Maputo, Mozambique.
These carvings fit over any bic pen refill - - just pull it out of the bic.
To give you more depth of the feeling of these pens, I include photos I took of the people, place and day when I bought them.
Surround yourself with art. Artists give our souls to nurture yours. All of the art on this site was bought directly from a truly grateful artist.
