    Story Behind the Art:

    'I am Salihu Ibrahim. I was born in Ghana in 1964. With the death of my father, I was sent to live with one of my father's closest friends, Opanin Osei, a renowned traditional carver to the then Akwamu chief and the people of Akwamu. He would usually carve the items and then pass them on to me for the final polishing and beautification. I worked with him for about 15 years, during which time I learned the various styles and techniques of the Ashanti and Akwamu people. Before my decision to come to the city, I had carved about 50 pieces made purposely to help me raise sufficient capital to open a workshop. With the help of my friend, these products sold in no time, to my surprise. Now, I have apprentice carvers working with me learning the art of carving.'
