Handmade Three-legged African Elephant End Table (Ghana)by African Creations

The Story Behind the Product
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

I bought this table as a gift for my daughter, who just moved to new digs at school. She loved the table and the elephant carvings. The special care with which the tusks were packed separately was a nice touch. She now has it as a bedside table in her small room in the shared house. Thank you, Overstock!Read More
