This keychain was hand carved in Kenya.  Teenage boys and girls who have had to drop out of school because their families cannot afford the fees get to learn to carve these out of cow bone and earn money to finish school. 

They apply wax to the bone and dip it in dye.  The wax resists the dye, causing the area where it was applied to remain white.  When the wax is removed the colors you see are revealed.
