Story Behind the Art:
Francis Agbete comes from a family of traditional wood carvers. 'While at school, funding was becoming a difficulty, so during weekends and vacations, I would visit my father's workshop and assisted him by carving some products for sale. The realization eventually dawned on me to stay on, work on my own designs, and display my own woodcarvings. I opened a new workshop which my sister and a cousin manage and together we preserve the family legacy.'
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.

The elephants are very tiny. Re-order, because they are still beautiful, but each time the tusks were broken. Still love themRead More

Pricey for such small sculptures, but they are so darn cute. Be sure and loook at the dimenstions---these really are only 1 to 2 inches tall. They are going to fit nicely on a shelf in our family room. They look exactly as pictured.Read More
