African Art

African sculpture is one of the most expressive art forms, giving insights into the history and cultures of each of the various tribal communities. Primarily fashioned from African mahogany, the pieces are one-of-a kind treasures.

In 2014, Tom Ellis was sent to Monrovia, Liberia during the Ebola epidemic to help Liberian healthcare workers with humanitarian relief. That is when he discovered the woodcarvers who are descendants of freed African Americans who emigrated from the United States.

Fourth-generation woodcarvers, their unique art pieces are a neglected legacy, as there is no market in Monrovia for the craft, or tourists to buy their wares.

Ellis and the group he traveled with were so impressed with the wood carvings that when it was time to leave Liberia, they emptied their suitcases of personal belongings and filled them with as many treasured pieces as they could buy to bring home.

Still in close communications with the artists of Monrovia, Ellis has obtained crates of their African mahogany wood carvings to sell on their behalf. With no major industries to provide continuous employment there, the proceeds of the sales, which are returned to the artists, help to provide additional income.
