Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Lord came home from high school one day to learn that his father, the breadwinner of the family, had passed away. His father had taught him how to sketch and Lord quickly was determined to make a living for himself and his family through carvings and sculptures. Although he found it extremely challenging at first, Lord is now a master at creating beautiful African masks and sculptures. He hopes one day to have a home and a happy family.

When Lord was a child, he injured his spinal cord in a bike accident. Luckily after some time, he was able to recover and could walk again.

Lord supports the education of his children, which ranges from elementary school to high school and eventually university.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Lord has four children with the youngest in elementary school.
