Lovers meld their lips in a kiss as their bodies entwine. Gordon Adu depicts the rapt couple as an expression of passion and devotion. Ebony wood is his medium for this elegant contemporary sculpture.
About the Artist: Born in 1974, Gordon Adu was unable to finish secondary school because of economic limitations, and thus fell back on his natural artistic inclinations. He took advantage of an offer from one of his older brothers, a carver, to help hone his latent talents. In eight months Adu had advanced greatly in the creation and finishing of wooden art. Armed with talent and burgeoning experience, he moved to the city to seek new opportunities. After a while he returned to his home city and established his workshop there, receiving indispensable moral support from his brother.
The Gordon Adu Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Gordon Adu in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
