Evoking traditional African fertility dolls, this sculpture is created by Ghanaian artisan Joseph Boateng. He carefully hand-carves this sculpture from sese wood, depicting two lovers that sit side-by-side on a bench. One holds a baby in her arms, but they both hold each other, as their heads stretch upward and join together. This sculpture is given a black polished finish, accented with pieces of intricately embossed aluminum.

  • materials: Sese wood, aluminum

Artisan Information

Joseph Boateng

Shop all Joseph Boateng products

My name is Joseph Boateng, and I was born in the Ashanti region on September 23, 1966. I had my primary education in a Roman Catholic school from 1972 to 1978, and received my middle school education from 1978 to 1982.

My sister then brought me to a town where I had a friend who knows a lot about carving. He then took me to another village where I learn this trade. Later, I moved to a city where now I train 14 people. I am married, with three children.

"I have always dreamed of promoting Ghana's rich culture to the outside world through well designed artifacts. I specialize in a wide range of wood carving styles, such as Ashanti stools, coffee tables, masks, fertility dolls and bookends.

"I began exhibiting my work in 2002."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
