"When they are in trouble, children think only their parents can deliver them," Eric Danquah muses. Agikwa means "savior" in the Akan language, and it is the name he gives to this thoughtful work. Airy line depicts an adult leaning forward to take the hands of the child who reaches up to be held. African sese wood lends its unique grain to this beautiful work.
Eric Danquah has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to purchase wood as well as sandpaper, polish and wood stain for increased production.
