Details

Dressed in traditional attire, a man speaks to his people. His erect posture and assured gestures reveal his royal lineage, for he is a ruler of the kingdom of the Akpini Anyi-Gbe. Sinclair Yao Daley carves the image by hand and gives it a rich brown color with natural cola nut dye. "I named this sculpture Dagadu, which means 'great king' in the Ewe language. It is symbolic of one highly honored, a mighty one full of praise and worthy of respect," the artisan explains.
