Details

Sleek antelopes graze in the African savannah, their graceful elegance captured in ebony wood. Kwaku Ofosuhene Apenteng creates a beautiful pair of bookends, carved by hand and finished with mansion polish. The books bear the Gye Nyame Adinkra symbol. Ghanaian Adinkra symbols communicate popular wisdom to the people. With its rotating movements, Gye Nyame is understood as "I fear none except God."

"Beyond Expectations"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was my first Novica purchase, so I was wary. But I was blown away by the quality of the piece and very happy with the size. Shipping was much faster than I anticipated based on the delivery window I was provided, and the item was well-packaged for protection of the artwork. The gift wrapping was beautiful, as well! Overall, everything about this purchase exceeded my expectations, and I am a very satisfied customer. I would purchase from this artist again oh, and have I already purchased from Novica several times now!

"Great bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a fun and attractive bracelet that compliments any outfit. Great colors and it stays in place. I don?t have large wrists and it was a rather snug fit, plenty of room to get it on and not be tight, but not for someone with large wrists.
