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.

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.

"Functional Art"

When I upgraded my main floor bathroom, I used the African Princess mirror as its focal point. Hence, I bought my vanity, counter top, and lights to complement the mirror. The bathroom turned out to be a remarkable room.
