"The carver shows great skill with wood."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Even though the artist is very skilled, his lack of reference to the shape of the ears on a lion led him to carve very pointed ones. Lions ears are broad and rounded. This took away from the effort to make these bookends look like lions. Also, the heads were too narrow for lions. Despite that the carvings are beautifully done, nicely stained, and will serve their purpose.

"A bit disapointed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I would have thought that the detail on an item of this value would have been there. The items in the basket by just scoring diagonally not individually carved as pictured.The walking child faces outward at the side of the mother not facing forward in motion with her as pictured which impacts how the piece is presented. One of the mothers ears is made by a relatively deep hole. It feels as though this piece was rushed.

"Plaited Hair Mahogany Bust So Very Beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The exquisite detail is so Beautiful and the mahogany has a high polish. I have it displayed on a dark wood base which really complements it as it is displayed under a floor lamp in a corner of my dining room. I have several pieces of sculpture by Mr. Obeng and I Love them all but this one is my favorite.

"George Obeng Creates Such Beautiful Carvings!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered his Divine Birth In Africa nativity set first and was so amazed at the exquisite detail. Then I ordered the Bambara Antelopes and again was in love with his beautiful carvings. I also ordered Collecting Water, a sculpture in ebony and a table, I Fear Only God. I am so grateful to him for creating such exquisite art at such an affordable price for my enjoyment. Thank you Mr. Obeng.
