In Africa, children make galimotos out of anything from sticks to cornstalks. Galimotos can be vehicles of any sort. This bicycling girl is made from cloth-wrapped wire. Watch the rider's legs "pedal" as the wheels move. Created by artisans of the Chuma Wires workshop based in the Dandora area of Nairobi, Kenya. Chuma Wires provides valuable work for artisans who have little or no other opportunities for employment in this marginal section of Kenya's sprawling capital.

  • Assorted designs
