This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

  • Material: Sese wood
  • Hang on wall
  • Spoon: 13.8 inches high x 2.8 inches wide x 1.6 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
Nana Frimpong is the chief carver for the king of the Ashanti. 'I draw inspiration from traditional kente cloth designs, from my family background, and from our rich Ashanti tradition. Some of my work for the king includes objects with 'gye nyame' (symbol for the supremacy of God), stools, staffs and other royal and ceremonial objects. My dream has always been to invest in my children's education. I am happy to say that this is now possible.'
