Gleaming brightly, accents of embossed aluminum decorate this hand-carved sese wood wall sculpture from Ghana. Otchere Raymond designs this sculpture, which offers a depiction of the traditional Adinkra symbol Sankofa. Embodied by a bird reaching to grab an egg off its back, Sankofa signifies the importance of learning from the past.
He has ten children under the ages of ten that he loves deeply and cares for.
Otchere Raymond has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $100 and the most recent for $300. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of such raw materials as wood, aluminum plate, polish, paints and dyes.
