Description

An authentic decorative African Walking Stick hand-carved out of a dark brown/black Sese Wood and featuring embossed aluminium accents. It derives its name from the couple prominently featuring on the decorative walking stick embracing. It serves as a reminder and testimony to the power of love in relationships and in the community.

Moving Couple is a premium African Walking Stick. It is thicker and features more intricate detailing and carving than most of our standard African Walking Sticks. Measures approximately 38 inches (Length) x 4.9 inches (Width) x 1.6 inches (Depth) and weighs approximately 1.2 lbs.


Many African societies regard a person with a walking stick with respect and dignity. Usually associated with age, an elderly person using a walking stick is believed to have accumulated vast knowledge and wisdom through the years. Traditionally, the design on a walking stick tells the societal status and political inclination of the person using it.


This walking cane has not been approved by any medical body or authority for use as a mobility aid. It is primarily designed for decorative purposes only.

Each walking stick is hand-carved out of Sese Wood by Eva Asantewa Amakye and her team. There may be slight and subtle differences in size, shape and/or pattern. This is what makes each walking stick unique and a true piece of African Art.
