Details

This friendly African osunu (elephant) raises its long lean trunk to shape the handle of this admirable walking stick. Ghanaian artisan Eva Asantewa Amakye creates the impressive design of this decorative walking stick. Carved by hand of seasoned sese wood, the walking stick features ornately embossed aluminum rings toward the bottom.

Many African societies regard a person with a walking stick with respect and dignity. Usually associated with age, an elderly person using a walking stick is believed to have accumulated vast knowledge and wisdom through the years. Traditionally, the design on a walking stick tells the societal status and political inclination of the person using it.

"Caught my eye"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I saw these earrings and I knew I really like them. I like flowers and most of my nice blouses have flowers on them and these earrings will match the blouses since they have all these pretty different colored beads that will match the flowers very well. Thank you. Your work on these earrings is done beautifully.
