Details

Carved by hand, this elegant mask represents courage. An African adinkra symbol on the forehead represents akofena, meaning "sword of war." "The crossed scimitars were a popular motif in the heraldic shields of many former Akan states. The swords can also represent legitimate state authority," artisan Theophilus Sackey explains. He covers the features with hand embossed aluminum.

I collect anything to do with rhinos and this mask looks even better in person. It is beautifully carved and is just stunning. I am very happy I purchased it.
