Salihu Ibrahim in Ghana presents this fascinating decorative broom, inspired by those used by the Guro peoples of the Ivory Coast as flyswatters. The sese wood handle is hand-carved to resemble a Guro tribal chief, right down to his long beard. Palm leaf petioles or stems are then secured to the handle using black cotton cloth. The broom features a loop for hanging on the wall if desired.

This mask is quite beautiful on my wall. It is so life like several of my children have committed how it makes them feel when sitting down. Just what I was looking for in a mask.

"A new favorite"

My husband really likes this new acquisition to his collection. We think it would be better to call the piece the Owl mask because it looks more like an owl than a butterfly but it is a good representation of a womens mask.
