Details

"This mask brings honor, integrity and wisdom to the possessor," Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo explains. She designs the handsome features with elegant symmetry. "Such masks are always placed on the table or at the foot of a chief whenever important decisions or judgments are to be made," she says. These were used by chiefs in Southern Ghana. The name, Dufia, is an Akan word meaning "Supremacy."

The detail and originality shown in this piece is amazing. I am a collector of tribal masks and am proud to have this particular mask in my collection. I look forward to adding many more masks to my ever-growing wall of African art.

"Carved for YOUR Hand ?"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ms. Evelyn has Outdone herself with This Creation ! I feel as if I?m taking a favorite piece of artwork with ?? whenever I reach for this cane, which is always. It provides a great balance as your hand is messaged by the neck of the bird. The wood is Super Smooth and as the neck curves one end is a tad higher than the other giving you an ergonomic option ?. I have both the darker one (245424) & lighter (245425). A lot of substantially coated carving that?s a Pleasure to use.
