Details

An incredible feat of acrobacy is transformed into a decorative walking stick of admirable artistry. Eva Asantewa Amakye designs this stunning walking stick in the shape of a woman bending at a 90┬░degree angle to form the handle while reaching out to a man. His long legs are intertwined giving shape to the stick. Meaning "lady" in the Twi dialect of the Akan people, the "Aketesia" walking stick is carved by hand of sese wood and decorated with embossed aluminum.

Many African societies regard a person with a walking stick with respect and dignity. Usually associated with age, an elderly person using a walking stick is believed to have accumulated vast knowledge and wisdom through the years. Traditionally, the design on a walking stick tells the societal status and political inclination of the person using it.

"Backpack of vibrant colors"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a smaller cloth backpack made of a thick cloth that is made of beautiful, vibrant colors, with a zippered side pocket. I plan to give as a gift at Christmas but I just had to open to see it. The workmanship is lovely, thank you.
