The Story Behind the Product
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

I was really excited about receiving my package however, as soon as I removed it from the box the right earring fell off in my hands (so dissappointed).
I ordered 2 of them; they were going to Christmas gifts for a couple of dear friends that would appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship. I did not even bother to take the other one out of the box. It is not my intention to discourage anyone from purchasing one but I just thought Overstock and the general public should be "aware".
I had ordered this figurine for my friend's wedding on July 1st. However, what I got was not at all like the picture shown above. I was disappointed to say the least because I wanted to give my friend a very special present that she would be proud to display in her home. I contacted Overstock's online help and was immediately assured I'd get a replacement EXACTLY like the one pictured. I sent the pkg back and a week later I had the prettiest statue delivered to my door. And it looked EXACTLY like the picture -- maybe even BETTER! I was SUPER pleased with the customer service I received and the super-short turnaround time to get the replacement. I gave the doll to my friend today (albeit a little late) but it was worth the wait because she cried and told me she adored it. So I'm very very pleased with my purchase. The price was right and Overstock was on the ball. Highly recommend this piece for your African decor -- it's well-crafted and stunning to look at it. You can't help picking it up and ooh'ing and ahh'ing over the craftsmanship.
After reading some of the previous reviews, I was hesitant to buy this statue, but am very glad I did. It is well carved and more than I expected. It arrived in less than one week, well packed. The statue was as pictured, with earrings and beads intact. I am giving it to my son and daughter-in-law who are trying to become parents, and am hoping it may bring some results.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
