Details

Ghanaian artisan Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo presents this beautiful sculpture, hand-carved of native sese wood. A single piece of wood is carefully carved to form an abstract couple in an embrace, their heads bent close for a kiss. Their upper bodies almost form a heart shape as they come together in the beautifully fluid design. The artisan names the piece lolonyo, which means "love is good" in the Anlo dialect spoken in the Volta region of Ghana.

The detail and originality shown in this piece is amazing. I am a collector of tribal masks and am proud to have this particular mask in my collection. I look forward to adding many more masks to my ever-growing wall of African art.
