Story Behind the Art:
Juliana Akandas became interested in Ghanaian carvings while working as a secretary, so she learned woodcarving. 'My favorite is the Akuaba doll. When given this doll, any woman who cannot have babies is believed likely to get pregnant. I was so fascinated with all this that I decided to learn the trade, and did so through a carver in Aburi. My products are unique; they have a meaning and they are backed by history. Almost all my masks have a meaning and a history behind them.'
