Story Behind the Art:
Eric Danquah showed interest in carving as a young man, and would sometimes go around helping the carvers of his community. However, his mother wanted him to be an electrician so she sent him to the city to study electronics. Soon enough, Danquah realized that this was not his calling, and he decided to return home to learn the art of carving, and dedicate his life to it. He is joined by a younger brother and sister.
