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

    Ghana's famed gye nyame symbol emerges in cedar wood bookends, its rotating form meaning 'I fear none except God.' George Obeng carves the traditional motif by hand to grace a pair of bookends.

    Product Features:
    • Color: Brown
    • Material: Cedar wood
    • Dimensions: 5.5 inches high x 7.5 inches wide x 10.4 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    'My carving is motivated by this: I want to record the events of my time,' says Ghana's George Obeng. As an animal rights activist and a committed vegetarian, wildlife plays an integral role in his work. He depicts themes from developing countries as well as comments on the cyclical problem of social confusion and irresolution. He is an observer, struggling to represent the myriad of unheard voices that surround him.

      These bookends are absolutely beautiful! I love them and I hope my friend is as excited as I am about them! The bookends were very well wrapped; however, the base on one of the bookends was broken off! When I phoned Overstock to launched a compliant, I was told the item was out of stock. I was so devastated! The good news is that Overstock has such excellent customer service and we were able to work out a mutual agreement on the product! I am pleased with the outcome! I am a satisfied customer!
