Details

Sensuous lips and sloe eyes of sese wood confer a sleek beauty on this elegant mask. An ornament of beads and cotton thread adorns the nose and richly embossed brass covers cheeks and forehead. Among the Akan people of Ghana, this mask is believed to scare away the spirits of calamity. Juliana Akandas names her design Mumah Po, which means "big forehead."

This is a very unique and well made mask, love the various textures used by the artist. The weight of this piece is very substantial. The name given by the artist appealed to me as an individual.

"Great colorful wall art."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

We needed something to fill a narrow wall space in the great room. Took a chance on purchasing this mask because of the size and colors. We were definitely not disappointed! The size, colors, etc were exactly as depicted on the website. Definitely recommend the piece and the artist. Would buy it again! It also arrived ahead of scheduled date!
