    Story Behind the Art:
    Ghana's Daniel Nyadedzor says, 'In 1996, after finishing school, I decided to help my brother. He is a carver and had his own shop. I did all his paperwork. After working with him for a few months I realized the need for international quality standards. The business grew tremendously and we have worked together all these years. We use a hardwood known as sese for carving the masks. There are about twenty apprentices working with us. Our wood carvings are always given an antique finishing.'
