A carved Lion ipod stand crafted by Kenyan artisans.
There are 5 types of stands available for purchase, one for each of the ‘big five’ animals, including Giraffe, Hippo, Cheetah and elephant. The ‘big five’ is a popular touristy reference to the main attractions at the renowned Kenyan wildlife parks.

Sweet post! You know what would be great? A podcast or video of an interview with the maker or the company owner. Could be pretty cool.
thanks hash…my first on afrigadget after eons. A podcast would be really cool, i will try to find the time to do that (cant promise just yet) M mentioned that he would check maasai market if someone can get the Ipod stand, will see if there is anything there. I would have the artisans add a hole/space to allow for the charger cord, so someone can put the ipod on the stand while it charges.
Fantastic! I love the carved USB cases!! It would make a beautiful gift.Great idea.
