One of The Carvings  Made From ore

Inside the courtroom, now a museum, lies a lot of pieces of art and history which blend in amazingly creating a vintage yet fascinating ambiance inside the room. This picture shows an ore (‘Ng’ang’ai in Kikuyu), which is a mixture of sand and clay used by the Agikuyu to make spears, swords, knives and bells in the 19th century and early 20th century.
