    Story Behind the Art:
    Abubakari Alhassan says, 'My interest in the arts and carvings started at a very tender age, as I was fascinated by pieces of wood and calabashes. Because of the strict work ethics of 'do it best the first time,' my carving tutor never graduated any of his students until he was sure that he was sending out a good carver. For this reason, I spent five years under his tutelage. With good planning, I started saving little monies from towards expanding my workshop.'
