Details

This fascinating mask is the original design of Awudu Saaed from Ghana. The elongated visage has its mouth open and eyebrows arched, as if in surprise. Carved by hand from rubberwood, the mask features a long beard made of jute. The artisan names his creation Abajo, meaning "come and dance" in the Ga tongue.

"Perfect for placement on window shelf where the sun highlights its features."

This is a beautifully carved and painted fish. Very nice detail and stands on its own on a shelf where the sun shines that brings out its nicely detail features.
