This elaborate African mask from Ghana is hand-carved of local sese wood to depict a face with a beard and braided hair, accented with a crescent shape at the top. Christopher Nyasafo crafts the mask in the traditional style of Baule masks. The Baule tribe represents a subgroup of the Akan people in the Ivory Coast. Line motifs in the center of the brow reflect scarification practices.
