Story Behind the Art:
Ghana's Winfred Korley says, 'I developed the art of carving at a young age. After school, I'd walk to a nearby workshop to observe carvers busy sculpting different objects from a log of wood. I was surprised to see such beautiful art pieces, and this aroused my interest in learning more. Several times during such visits, I picked up pieces of wood from the workshop and, when I reached home, I tried my hand at carving, following the process I had observed.'
