"Beyond stunning"

This is a true piece of art! I purchased this piece as I wanted something from my Ghanaian ancestry and to help support artists from the country. A testament to the creators skill. You can see the quality of work the artist has put into the piece! Would reccommend everyone to look into Victors work and support his business
