Details

"This is a portrait of a nephew of mine," says Ghanaian artisan Anna Yawson. "Because he has slightly long ears, his siblings and cousin always make fun of him. But he turned out to be the most intelligent of all the cousins and brothers. I want to send this message – that we should treat everyone with respect and dignity despite their disability or natural defects." She works in seasoned African sese wood, carved and painted by hand.
