Details

A noble helmet is hand-carved from sese wood with pointed horns, centering a length of adjustable black cord. This necklace is created by Ghanaian artisan Robert Aidoo-Taylor, who flanks the pendant with petite wood beads and discs. He paints the pendant in colors of green and brown. The necklace is named Yaa Asantewaa, after a past Ashanti queen, famous for her resistance of British colonialism.

"Not as pictured"

The quality is fine, but the pendant is flat...no contours and it is brown instead of the silver grey color. It just doesnt resemble a face as the photo shows. It is also bigger than it appears by quite a lot.
