Victor's story

Victor is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in hand-carved wood masks and sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood, aluminum plating, and other supplies.

Victor has been selling through NOVICA since 2015. This is his story:

“My name is Victor, and I was born in Accra. I grew up in a community of woodcarvers and designers, which naturally made me interested in it. During this time, I learned to master the craft after a lot of practical experience. I find that sanding down the wood has been the main challenge of this art. After completing my training, I also taught two others, who actively use their skills. My creations are made from sese wood, which is readily available in my local markets. I am inspired by the Bible as well as other artists. My favorite part about this craft is designing. My family works alongside me, helping me sand down my creations before I put the finishing touches on them.

I thank you for keeping me in business. This pandemic has hit me so hard. But I feel comforted when I remember that you are there to help me always. May God bless you."
