In 1993 sculptor Samuel Samei Marco from Freetown, Sierra Leone carved this fantastic statue from English oak in Hull. It depicts an emancipated African slave making a pilgrimage to visit William Wilberforce. The wood carving was given to Wilberforce House as a gift from Marco and remains on display today.
