Ghanaian artisan Victor Dushie uses a daring combination of hand carved sese wood and hammered aluminum to make a lion figurine of very curious appearance. The contrast between the wood and the aluminum helps to differentiate between the sleek body and gallant mane. Dushie's awesome craftsmanship is well complemented by the unique design of the piece.
