I just received the Northern Ghanaian Warrior. Absolutely beautiful work. Every piece of art: carvings, drawings, sculptures, etc. is art only when the soul of the artist can be felt within the work. That is exactly how I feel about this piece. Thank you...it will be cherished, well cared for and displayed prominently.
