Beautiful hand carving
I was very impressed with the quality of the wood carving with the giraffe. Very excited to have it displayed in my house.
Striking Piece of Artwork
The beadwork on this item is stunning. I only wish that the head and ears on mine were a little more cat-like. (I am a cat lover.)
I hesitated in purchasing for a few months but now that I purchase it ....I love it! It looks good with other pieces I purchase from Ghana..

Hand Carved Wood Sculpture of Family from Ghana, "Mother's Children"$99.99
Hoping to become one of the greatest artists in Africa, Ghana's Raymond Yaw Afari uses his work to help continue his education. Carving this sculpture by hand from local sese wood, he names it in Akan, meaning "mother." A strong, motherly figure holds hands with three children in this piece, reflecting the beauty in family.
Handcarved Dark Brown Wood Giraffe Sculpture from Ghana, "Giraffe II"$89.99
Using local tools, Ghanaian artisan Bright Kofi Agbetey skillfully hand carves this sleek wood giraffe sculpture. The figure is captured tilting its head back, as if about to pluck some leaves or a piece of fruit from a tall tree. The rustic dark brown painted finish creates the impression of a silhouette, as if the animal was seen eating after the sun has begun to set. The sculpture stands steady on a brown wood base for easy display.
Romantic Wood Sculpture, "Dancers in Black"$104.99
With arms lifted overhead, partners place a hand on each other's waist and perform a graceful dance. The lithe couple forms an abstract knot with their slender bodies. George Obeng carves the beautiful piece from mahogany wood and gives it a rich black finish.
Artisan Crafted Wood Sculpture (Set of 5), "Duck Family"$64.99
Carved by hand from sleek African ebony, five ducklings swim together. Ghana's Francis Agbete names the set — "the duck family" in the Ewe language. "We should know we all belong to a family," he says. "These carvings remind each one of it."
