  • Crafted of Sese wood

Story Behind the Art:
'I was born in the eastern region of Ghana and trained in dressmaking but realized that the trade would not do well in my town,' Ernestina Oppong Assante says. 'I therefore trained for three years as a wood carver, and began developing woodcarvings on my own. Though carving has long been regarded as the preserve of men, I am glad that I have been able not only to infiltrate but to also make an impact on the trade.'
