"Exquisite piece of art"

This Gye Nyame Trophy, form the Akan people of Ghana, means He who knows and sees everything . It works very well with my other collection of African art and receives complements as well.

"Conversation piece"

This is very tall and very nice! I love the symbolism of it and it is a great conversation piece. Everyone who enters my house wants to know more about my lovely bird. I will treasure it forever.

"Amazing quality, craftsmanship, & origin story"

My ancestors come from the Akan people and I was so happy to get them this weapon as they made it clear no other would do. I genuinely was so ecstatic to receive my package and I love everything about the sword! It?s powerful, elegant, meaningful, and just downright badass! Thank Ali Ibrahim for crafting this with your own hands. I read your story and was truly touched. Keep up the amazing work!

"A Unique and Beautiful Piece"

What a beautifully crafted piece of art! When I received it, it was larger than I thought it would be, and I could tell right away that much love had gone into crafting this goblet. Mine is displayed on a black wood accent table in my dining room. Looks beautiful...Thank you Ali and Novica for bringing this wonderful art to us!
