African Art Hand Carved Chest

This African Art Hand Carved Chest is made from yemani wood (local term for gmelina arborea) and measures approximately 35” by 11’ by 11.5”. Moka the Artist has used yemani wood a hard wood tree found in tropical West Africa. Moka enjoys working with this particular wood because of its durability. 

Various scenes of village, plant and animal life have been carved on the outside of the pieces of wood forming this chest.

Chests are very popular in western culture as ornamental pieces. These hand- carved African art chests have practical uses in the African Village huts where they are used for storage space, benches, tables and even bedding.

Moka has created this piece however, not to use in his hut, but to sell as a fine piece of African artistry in order to provide for his family.

Moka knows that this piece although it has very strong African depictions, would transition very well into a western home. He convinced us at Unitique to show it on our website, but we were already convinced by the mastery of his talents that we wanted his work to be shown here. We felt it is worthy of display to a wider audience than his tiny African village where he lives.
