Sango Comes to Life in Door Panels: December’s Projects


Sango Comes to Life

December’s focus is this woodcarving project of 4 door panels, made out of Afara wood, a dense hardwood from a tall, leafy green tree of the forest. This is a creamy wood pleasing to Sango and very durable for hundreds of years. Master carver Kasali Akangbe will send these off to a private collector in Brooklyn, New York, when they are finished. A typical carving of 4 panels can fetch up to U.S. $6,000.
