Details

A master of traditional African design, Godfred France creates an elegant mask that arises from his own imagination. Its serene shape is harmonious with big, round eyes, red lips and a rounded headdress. But it is the rich color that distinguishes this handcrafted work of art. The African mask is named Ejorle, a Ga word that means "peace."

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.
