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.

    Bowls a bit small. I don't hate it but I sure don't "love" it either.

  • Tribal Bowl - so Excellent
    Verified Purchase

    Love this bowl. Sits on the kitchen table, proudly displayed. Couldn't have gotten a nicer bowl without traveling to Africa.

  • Very nice decorative bowl

    I love this bowl. I love to put my colorful fall fruits in it. It gives a warm feeling of fall to the area where it is placed.

  • It's just perfect!
    Verified Purchase

    I am extremely pleased with my African Fruit Bowl. It is unique and garners comments from friends and family all the time. There are irregularities in construction and finish which make it even more special -- it's handmade after all. The size is just right for my counter top -- I am very happy with the product. It was delivered very quickly too and the price was unbelievable. I highly recommend it to all.

  • I love this bowl! Very simple yet elegant in a rustic sort of way! As soon as I saw it I had to have it and as usual, I am not disappointed with anything I have gotten from Overstock.com. I love that I can get things from all over the world without having to go there, although, that would be even great! Thanks Overstock.com for getting me as close to Africa as possible!!

  • Artistic, simple, elegant...
    Verified Purchase

    I love everything about this bowl. Even better than pictured. It sits on my kitchen table and complements it beautifully ~ I love looking at it and I also like its uniqueness. An odd combination of folk art and elegance is perfectly captured in this bowl! While I would like to imagine it being lovingly handcarved by an individual in Ghana, I am pretty sure it's a bit more mass produced than that...still, with its slight imperfections, it has a stamp of individuality that connects people somehow. Thanks OS for these Worldstock items.

  • A touch of Africa
    Verified Purchase

    This was a gift for my sister. She spent time in Africa teaching and has much African decor throughout her house. She loved the bowl and felt it was very authentic. I highly recommend as a gift for anyone with African themed decor or an interest in African art/culture.

  • Good quality, small size

    I really liked the looks of this bowl and thought it would be great on a ledge in my African-theme bedroom. It is MUCH smaller than it appears in the picture. I was expecting something the size of a large fruit bowl but this is barely bigger than a cereal bowl. I'd recommend it for the price and quality but don't be fooled by the size.
