Smooth features reveal her youth, yet she is wise beyond her age. Tears spill from both eyes as great happiness overwhelms the girl. Rita Addo Zakour designs this beautiful African mask. Carved by hand of native sese wood, the mask features applications of aluminum repoussé, and beadwork surrounds the eyes. "Amidst extreme joy, some people shed tears," the Ghanaian artisan affirms.

"Mask reflects owners happiness"

This unique mask looks lovely in my foyer. The background color is lighter than on the website but I understand each piece is unique. Workmanship is superb.

"Bracelet nicely made"

Nice with black and white outfits but note it was a bit large for my narrow wrist and had to remove a bead.
