Details

This decorative stool brings a touch of African culture to any home, crafted by hand of sese wood and accented with brass triangle motifs. Victoria Agyepomaa draws her inspiration from the traditional Adinkra motifs of the Ashanti tribe, depicting a sankofa bird with multicolored beads of recycled glass, its form originating from the shape of a stylized heart. This symbol encourages us to learn from the past. The bottom part of the stool features an Akan symbol that reads Gye Nyame, symbolizing the supremacy of God.

"Disappointed"

Had to ask Novica for a return, which they did and paid for postage. This was poorly made. Crooked beadwork and wood was very unattractive. But Novica made it right.

"I gave this away"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This looked nice in the picture, but the piece itself looked scary. In profile, this zebra has a mouth full of white teeth as if its grinning. The detail work on the front of the face was beautiful, but the paint on the eyes was very sloppy and they looked strange, like goats eyes. I thought about repainting it, but I was honestly unnerved by it when I unwrapped it, and put it in the utility room in my building so someone else could have it if they wanted.
