Details

Obo-adaka is a suburb of Aburi in Eastern Ghana, its name literally meaning "box made from rock." This horror mask by Prince Amartey presents a healer from Obo-adaka, his prominent forehead, bulging cheeks and rough beard of jute fibers imposing upon the viewer. It is as though the healer possesses facial features intended to scare off evil-minded demons, enabling him to carry out his life-saving duties. Hewn from a single block of sese wood and adorned with brass plates, the complex design is sure to garner attention in any setting.

The work is treated with a light layer of china clay (kaolin) and white wood mix to provide an antique-like effect.
