- Carved by Ghanaian artisan Robert Nortey
Robert Nortey joined his brother, Nii Noi Nortey, as a collector of antiques, as well as an imaginative creator of new carvings. After four years of working together, Nortey left to start a workshop of his own. Presently, he works along with expert artists, all designers and carvers. Nortey currently focuses on the design aspect of the process. The carvings are principally created in sese, nyame dua, tweneboah,
and other quality woods. These are obtained from the eastern and central regions of Ghana. Says Nortey, who has been involved in this trade for the past twenty years, 'I love my art and I hope to produce more interesting designs for my customers.' He has participated in countless exhibitions, always achieving positive results.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
