    Story Behind the Art:

    He took advantage of an offer from one of his older brothers, a carver, to help hone his latent talents. Born in 1974, Gordon Adu was unable to finish secondary school because of economic limitations, and thus fell back on his natural artistic inclinations. He took advantage of an offer from one of his older brothers, a carver, to help hone his latent talents. In eight months Adu had advanced greatly in the creation and finishing of wooden art.

    Armed with talent and burgeoning experience, he moved to the city to seek opportunities. After a while he returned to his home city and established his workshop there, receiving indispensable moral support from his brother.
