Details

Working in native sese wood, Ali Ibrahim depicts an Ashanti icon. A traditional adinkra symbol from Ghana inspires him. Carved by hand, it features the sankofa image, enhanced with the textures of embossed aluminum and copper. This is understood as "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backward.

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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!
