Story Behind the Art:
Madam Adwoa became involved in handicrafts through her mother, who sold Adinkra symbols and kente cloths. While helping her mother, she began to offer a small number of woodcarvings, which to her surprise sold very well in the market. This inspired Madam Adwoa to pursue woodcarving as a career. After a period of careful instruction, she opened up her own workshop, under the banner, 'God moves in mysterious ways.'
Currently Madam Adwoa heads a team of fifteen artisans in her workshop.

Very unhappy with the size of this mask..was looking to purchase mid - large size pieces of art..This mask is miniature in size but beautifully crafted. .doesn't help to fill in wall space at all will send backRead More
The price should be lowered, the brightness of the product should be enhanced, and the materials used to create this piece should be of greater quality. Thus, overall, this product has a chic carved design. But, it lacks vibrancy and luxurious appeal. Additionally, the mask doesnt have a hook on the back for hanging, how disappointing! In a nutshell, this piece gets only 2 STARS!Read More
