Today, Anas Aremeyaw Anas received the much talked about honorary sculpture made by a 24-year old final year student of KNUST, Godwin Addo. He was flanked by two other hooded men and a police man when he received the sculptor from Godwin.
Godwin started the artwork when Anas named and shamed 34 judges and other judicial service workers a few months ago. It’s initial stages (pictured below) was highly publicized by both local and international media.
Presenting the sculpture to Anas at the premisis of Kumasi-based Ultimate Radio, Godwin said he aspires to reflect developmental issues with his artwork.
the piece I did on Anas was to appreciate what he has done so far in his work as a journalist; I have followed his work on corruption at the Port and the recent one on the judges. In a way, I was also using him as a piece for my project work which I am embarking on about corruption
On the cost and the quality of the sculpture, Godwin said he used silicon as the mode picking material which cost him about Ghc1, 000. The fiber glass he used also cost him about Ghc1, 000. In all, it cost him about Ghc2, 000 to make the sculptor.
