Garland, Texas

Thank you very nice.
I have purchased two pieces from Mr. Asmah ""A Great King"" and ""Queen Aura Poka"" I must say I am truly pleased I love the detailed aluminum pieces mounted on the wood. Both pieces are just simply stunning.
Thank you Kobina Asmah for your dedication to the arts. I received your beautifully wrapped ""Boli Protection"" which is even more stunning in person. Thank you and I look forward to more of your crafts.
