Details

Laboriously working under the shade of a tree, two Ashanti women prepare fufu, prepared of boiled cassava and plantain. One sits and turns the fufu while the other stands and pounds forcibly into mortar. When ready, it is served with all kinds of soups. Master carver Eric Danquah presents this scene of every day life with enlightening detail.

"Splendid work of art."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece of art reminds me of the days when we washed our clothes in the wash pot. I bought this about 7 or 8 years ago, and it stills looks new. The wood and colors are solid and durable. It's a beautiful work of art by the artist.

Love the table, but was delivered with a chip out of one of the elephants leg, so it?s currently hidden away against a wall until I can try and repair it as the light color wood shower starkly.

"Beautiful music"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece of art sculpture was larger than I expected which gives it a solid presence. It is made of wood but the clean lines and colors show an artistry of one who can create movement, harmony and elegant poignancy using the carving knife like a conductors baton. Looking forward to seeing more examples of this artists work!
