Among Ghana's Akan people, the horse is much admired for its strength and determination. Daniel Nyadedzor sculpts a beautiful equine image, embellishing the carving with ornate brass repousse. He names the piece Oponkor (Horse). "Because hard work brings success in life, this image is a token of encouragement," he says.
About the Artist: Ghana's Daniel Nyadedzor says, 'In 1996, after finishing school, I decided to help my brother. He is a carver and had his own shop. I did all his paperwork. After working with him for a few months I realized the need for international quality standards. The business grew tremendously and we have worked together all these years. We use a hardwood known as sese for carving the masks. There are about twenty apprentices working with us. Our wood carvings are always given an antique finishing.'
The Daniel Nyadedzor Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Daniel Nyadedzor in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
