Eric Danquah faithfully replicates the artistic stylizations of Ghana's Akan people with this ornate mask. He carves it by hand of sese wood and adorns it with embossed aluminum and painted motifs. "It is Odo Ntease, the mask that celebrates faithfulness in love," explains the talented artisan.
Eric Danquah has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to purchase wood as well as sandpaper, polish and wood stain for increased production.
