Concentric lines accentuate the contours of this bold and authentic African mask. Carved by hand of seasoned sese wood, the face is framed with raffia hair. "In the northern region of Ghana, farmers put such masks in their farms to help them have good rains for a good harvest," says artisan Emmanuel Opoku Asante.

"Absolutely Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It took a little while for this mask to arrive because of the hurricanes, and it was worth the wait. I call this Northern Spirit Mask my Donald Trump mask, noting the correlation between money and water. When I displayed my Dan Protector Mask, I heard the Spirits rhythmic song as they were released to do thier work. I am a Christian and believe in the Holy Spirit embodied in these masks. Thanks Mr. Opoku. Sincerely, Dan.

This African fertility doll was beautifully handcrafted. This is not my first time purchasing from Novica, but each time I have been very pleased with all products. Fast shipping and quality items. I would highly recommend purchasing this item and shopping with Novoca.
