Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are notoriously wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Toyin Jelili Folorunso was a great nephew of the late master of Nigerian aluminum relief sculpture, Asiru Olatunde, and a grandson of Asiru's brother Yekini Folorunso.   He was selected to exhibit his work at the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe in 2007 and several years thereafter.  In 2009 Toyin Folorunso was one of three of our artists chosen by President Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative to create commemorative artworks to be presented to the winners of the Clinton Global Citizen Awards (view the Press Release here).  In July of 2023 I was informed by a mutual friend that Toyin had recently passed away in Nigeria.  No date or other information were available.
