Details

By Abdul Aziz Mohamadu, two beautiful masks show the same basic design. Yet each is decorated differently — one with ornate brass repoussé, the other with colorful beadwork. He names the pair Nyamekye, which means "God's gift" in the Twi language. "This is my idea of fraternal twins," the Ghanaian artisan explains. "Children are truly a gift from God."

"god's gift of twins"

the painted mask did not resemble what was portrayed in the picture. what I got was dull and poorly painted. very disappointed. much too expensive for the quality of the masks. i suggest using glossy paint, not dull paint as was used on my mask.
