The Story Behind the Product

Nana was born to a family of 9 children in the town of Kumasi in Ghana, West Africa. His parents divorced when he was only 8 years old and Nana became so rebellious that his mother sent him to live with his father in Tamale (in the Northern region of Ghana) when Nana was 12 years old. It was there that he developed an interest in art. He dropped out of school when he was 14 and started training with a master carver in Tamale. In 2000 Nana began selling his products through Worldstock. Nana is now married with 3 children and lives in Accra, Ghana. He is now a master carver with his own shop and 10 employees. Nana?s life has been so improved since he began working with Worldstock that he named his son after his contact at Overtsock.com.

  • Very nice hand made sculpture

    This arrived exactly as described. Nicely made and exactly what I needed for a mid-century modern installation.

  • 'The Thinker'

    Shipping was fast. The statue is nothing like in the picture at all, you will be dissatisfied if you look closely. It looks good in a distance. It is not worth for the $ you paid, truly.

  • Better than I thought

    I ordered this with a doubt thinking it would not look exactly as the picture. I know Overstock is really good about accepting the product back if I was not happy. I am very pleased with it. It looks great in my wall of art.

  • Nice piece

    I love this guy. I have a similarly sized statue of the original "thinker" and this is in the same room. It's a conversation piece and I've gotten compliments on it.

  • Not like picture

    The statue was not polished like the one in the picture. It was not finished smooth in a number of places. I spent and hour finishing and polishing and will display the statue in the family room.

  • Very nice

    I'm not sure what the other reviews are saying about the statue not looking like the picture; my copy is a true representation. Nicely made and a great piece. I think the lines are great from any angle, and it really does elicit emotion with the "thinker" motif. Sometimes pensive, sometimes thoughtful or even depressed. It's truly an engaging piece of art.

  • Not bad...

    It's a nice piece, but it did not look like it did in the picture. The wood was two different tones. It was ok, but I would have preferred the solid piece that they show above.
