During my senior year at the University of Illinois, I decided to take an easy course. I was getting burned out. So I signed up for an African Art History class. That class turned out to be my most difficult course and, after two weeks, and flunking a quiz, I found out it was an advanced course. I could have switched classes, but had already fallen in love with the cultures we studies. Most memorable was the Ashanti people. Years later, while in a store, I pointed to an object and said to my husband, "That's Ashanti." I hadn't yet confirmed my declaration. He picked it up, looked and was impressed that I could identify it as to which culture created it. I've been buying from Novica for years. This is one of my treasures. Beautifully detailed and constructed. I'm looking for another piece as well. Thanks, Abdul for your wonderful art!
this African mask is crafted very good and i will be purchasing another mask by this artist very soon. the delivery time was reasonable coming all the from Ghana. Thank you Ms. Rita Addo Zukar for sharing your talent with the wourld.
I this piece I'd beautifully made. I now have two from Mexico and one from Peru. Can you tell I like cats? The workmanship is excellent, I enjoy the little note in with the jaguar head. And I am most impressed with the really excellent packaging! You have made me very happy! Now to plan my next purchase!
