Details

Limpid eyes and an earnest voice seem inherent to this compelling mask. Godfred France creates a design of elegant harmony, embellishing African sese wood with hand-embossed brass and aluminum. Named Shankoko – a Hausa word meaning "the soul," the mask arises from the artisan's own imagination.

I ve been in love with Africa since I visited a few years back. I regretted not buying a mask then and have been looking for the perfect one ever since. I found this one and it now hangs over the entry door to my home making me feel safe and secure! It s beautiful and I m so happy!

"One of My Favorite of Four African Masks from Novi"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I especially love the use of embossed metal and display it proudly with other Novica-purchased masks from other African countries. In fact, I loved this and the other three Ive displayed together so much that I printed a picture of them to display on my office wall. I especially appreciate the use of clay coloring which gives this piece a distinctive look, while still working perfectly as part of my collection.
