Flotsam Thong Art
Benson Makau is 33, has 2 children and lives in Nairobi Kenya.
He is a Kamba tribesman originally from the Machakos district famous for producing the best carvers in Africa. As a new initiative Benson, and 5 fellow carvers, have applied their skills to a new medium - dis-used thongs - which are collected from landfill and beaches throughout Kenya.
From discarded rubbish beautiful sculptures are created.
