Details

Fiercely beautiful, these wall masks are an original design by Ghanaian artisan Abdulai Osman Adam. Expressive aluminum tigers are masterfully embossed on the forehead of two fang-shaped masks, each one masterfully carved by hand. Adam not only designs these sese wood masks, but he also creates a term for them, Shakpa meaning "original design."

"Beautiful representation of African Culture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The pieces arrived beautifully wrapped, however the true treasure was inside. The detail on each mask was awe-inspiring. You could tell that the artist took painstaking care into crafting each mask. I am in awe of such talent. The masks look beautiful on my wall. The insert containing information about the artist was a nice touch as well.
