Story Behind The Art -
Eric Danquah was born on December 12, 1974. He displayed 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, for which he had already demonstrated talent.  Says Danquah,I learned carving from a shop for three years and later established myself with my own shop. I started carving for a full time profession in the year 1997 at the age of twenty-three, and now have one boy I work with. We are four children in the family, among which my junior brother and sister are also talented with the skill of carving. My brother helps me a lot at the shop.  Sese wood serves as Danquah's primary material, as he uses chisels, gouges, and axes to extract its natural beauty.
