Hand carved and brightly colored, figures such as this lanky, fez-donning officer made in Ghana represent an artistic style known as Colon Art. Representing everyday people and occupations, these sculpted images of colonial figures document the enduring presence of foreign settlers in West Africa during the 20th century. Widely collected, these carvings capture the mixing of indigenous and European cultures that defined mid-century Africa.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
