Story Behind the Art:
'I got interested in wood carving when I was a child, when I used to visit my brother Salihu's workshop. When I completed junior high school, my parents could not further my education and so I joined Salihu at his workshop. I got paid for the work I did, which I saved to be able to buy my own tools. After 12 years of working with my brother I started to work on my own. I have taught other carvers, and currently have four carvers working with me.'
