The fiery visage of a Ghanaian warrior stares back at the viewer of this clay vase, enlightening centuries of artistic tradition. The dramatic look is completed by three horns crowning his head, perfect for a unique flower arrangement. Internationally famous artisan Samuel Lovi handcrafts this piece in his Ghana workshop.

Clay abounds in the southern part of Ghana; it takes an expert, however, to get the sand thoroughly washed out of the clay. In fashioning this piece, Lovi first prepares and molds the clay. He then fires the molded piece in a kiln at high temperatures, ensuring that it is hardened to the required strength. After cooling, it is hand-painted.
