    Story Behind the art:
    My name is Raphat Asigbey and I am a woodcarver. I was born in the Volta region of Ghana in 1981. My friends describe me as respectful, calm and hardworking. I became interested in this craft when I completed high school and was unable to further my education.

    I was taught by Daniel Quarcoo, a Novica-featured artisan. Starting out on my own was very difficult when I didn't have enough money to complete orders. I went through a hard time when I didn't receive enough work to support my family. I then worked for an exporter for a while, and later began participating in exhibitions.

    To master this art, I practiced crafting more unique designs.

    My favorite pieces are the Ashanti stools, or throne ottomans, which I craft with my own designs. My assistants now help me sand down the carvings and help with the finishing. I find it most challenging when depicting animals. My creative inspiration comes from dreams and the Bible.

    I hope to one day become a recognized artist worldwide and be able to help the poor in my community.

    The handmade 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.
