Description

An authentic decorative African Walking Stick hand-carved out of a dark brown/black Sese Wood and featuring ornately embossed aluminum rings toward the bottom. It features an elephant whose long and lean trunk forms the handle of the staff. Osunu is another word used for "Elephant" in the area of Ghana where the artist is from and is where this design derives its name.

The African elephant has long been a symbol of power and strength in many African cultures. The elephant is celebrated and represents the virtues of longevity, stamina, cooperative spirit, and loyalty.

Osunu Greeting 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 37 inches (Length) x 5.5 inches (Width) x 2.4 inches (Depth) and weighs approximately 1.1 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.
