Story Behind the Art:
Born into the Asona royal family, Nana Adu Amankwapam I is the inspiration of young and old. Because it has been his vision that the unemployed be trained and aided to improve their standard of living, he set up training workshops for youth in handicraft production. This includes carving, making and collecting beads, weaving adinkra cloth and crafting cane furniture. He aspires to open two more such workshops so that Ghana's rich handicraft tradition can be shown to the world.
