Details

Intended as a festive piece, this mask bears the fascinating artistry of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It features two faces auguring wisdom, for as the saying goes, "two heads are better than one." Robert Nortey carves this extraordinary mask from noble sese wood. His care for detail is admirable as he incorporates an aluminum plated embossed with the image of a slithering gecko.

"So Glad I Added to My Collection!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have many beautiful masks that I have ordered through Novica and love them, and this mask, ?To Foresee? is no exception! While it it one of my less embellished and detailed masks, it still makes a big impression. Heavy, substantial, and the beautiful reddish color really makes an impact! So happy to have it as part of my collection!

"Just beautiful..."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just received you mask, ?Keeping Order?, and it is beautifully made. I particularly love the contrast of the red and black, and the aluminum inserts are beautiful. It is proudly hanging on my wall already with my other masks from Ghana! At this time I have 5 masks, plus 2 mini masks in my collection. This one will not be my last!

"A very cool piece of African art!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I got the idea of obtaining an African mask when watching the movie The Translator with Nicole Kidman. I am glad that Novica is helping artists around the world share their creations. The True Courage mask is beautiful. Im not sure how the artist inlaid the different metal accents but it is quite remarkable. My thanks for sharing this great art so that I can share it with my friends and family. The mask was packaged very well and arrived unharmed.

"Stunning African mask!"

Dear Mr. Nortey, Thank you for your beautiful, stunning Nhyira mask. The textures are lush, exotic and intriguing. This wonderful work of art hangs in my living room and certainly makes a statement. One cannot take their eyes off the Nhyira mask once they enter the room. Thank you once again and I wish you all the best and many blessings.
