Story Behind the Art:
Born in the Volta region of Ghana, Ralph Kwasi Agudze has always been interested in art. 'After finishing school, I worked as a weaver in a textile company from 1973 to 1995, when the company had to lay off some of its workers. I then decided to learn a trade of my own. I was so determined to make it, it took me just a few months to learn wood carving and I discovered a surprising natural ability,' he confides.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
