Details

A powerful, yet mysterious woman forms the base of this handcrafted djembe drum designed by Daniel Asante of Ghana. The drum and base are carved from tweneboa wood and painted brown, with accents in dark red, cream, gold, and blue on the tiger and base ring. Bull skin is used to create the drum head, held in place with an iron ring covered in red cotton. Black cotton cord accents the body of the drum and forms a carrying handle. The drum can be played and will also make an eye-catching conversation piece. The artisan names this drum Ohemmaa, an Akan word for "queen mother."

It's a simple and beautiful mask, just as believing in yourself should be. I hung it on a dark cocoa wall and it 'glows'
This is my second piece of art from Mr. Asante I just received my mask ""Believe in Oneself"" and I must say it is absolutely gorgeous. Mr. Asante is truly a talented artist and I am sure I will purchasing many more pieces of his work.
