Details

Carved by hand from sese wood, this original African mask depicts a proud elephant. Emmanuel Opoku Asante adds applications of white clay to give his design an aged, antique effect, and adorns the forehead with aluminum repoussé.

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.
