Details

The handle on this walking stick is fiercely held between the jaws of a mighty denkyem (crocodile), in a design of powerful artistry by Eva Asantewa Amakye. The decorative walking stick is carved by hand of sese wood and painted black to enhance the dramatic effect of the design.

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.
