"Love this piece"

I feel honored to have a handmade piece from such an artisan. I am Akan by heritage and it's a piece that sits on my ancestor altar to honor my ancestors from the Akan people. It's a beautiful work of art that makes me feel connected to my people.

This piece is so stunning. Being from Africa I really love and admire the beautiful wood work from these talented artisans. The first one I received arrived broken but Novica immediately put in a replacement order as soon I informed them. Second one arrived perfectly.
