Story Behind the Art:
'After completing my elementary education, I became a self-taught woodcarver,' says Ghana's Ahmed Baba Osmanu. 'My creations are basically both decorative and utilitarian. My materials come from our environment, and I use various types of wood and plate to form different designs. I feel proud to have shown my art in Germany, the US, South Africa and Namibia.'
