Ghanaian Frank Odei Amoani creates this delightful pair of statuettes that make a unique addition to home decor. Carved by hand from sese wood, the artisan's own design features a couple with matching head wear, expressions, and hollowed eyes and mouths. The female statuette has long braids that cascade down her shoulders, and the male statuette has a long beard which he combs with his hands. The artisan uses local clay to give an attractive distressed finish to the statuettes, accentuating their natural appeal. The name awarefoo comes from an Akan word which translates to "married couple."
