Story Behind the Art: Born in a small tribal village in Ghana, West Africa to a family of 12 children, Akwasi Agyeman had limited opportunities. The family was so poor that he was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father in his farm just to feed the family. His teacher asked each of them to make something for art class and he produced a fertility doll as his project. His teacher was amazed and knew from that time he had a natural God-given talent. I met him in Ghana in 1994, he asked me to help market his products in USA. I brought some samples and sold them at art festivals. When we met he lived in a small dirt one room shack. After ten years of doing business with him, and with the help of Overstock.com, he's now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. He is very much aware of Overstock.com and the difference it has made in his life.

Nice wooden fruit bowl. Not as big/ wide as I'd like to have received but the decorative designs make this a nice conversation piece.
Only con was the smell. A bit like cow poop. Thank goodness it went away after the second week.
