Details

An imposing personage is at once beautiful and stern. Carved by hand from native sese wood, this authentic African mask is designed by Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo. She names it Dudzi, which means "victory" in the language of Ghana's Anlo-Ewe people. "When wrestlers from the Anlo tribe are given such masks, they usually marry into royal clans," she says. "Apart from being a decorative piece, this mask comes with my sincere wishes for victory and a blissful marriage."
