Story Behind the Art:
Ghana's Godfred France says, 'Due to financial constraints, my parents could not further my education and so I had to drop out of school and join my uncle, who was a wood carver. Thanks to the woodcarving, I've been able to educate my four children and I know that with constant sales, I'll be able to give them a brighter future than I had. This motivates me to wake up each day to carve!'

    The delivery time for this item is extremely long in comparison to other purchases. I would suggest, if you need the item as a gift to order month before the actual date of your needs. Disappointed on the time of receiving.
