Artisan Rapheal L. Commey of Ghana designs and hand-carves this unique wall mask. Aluminum plates with circle motifs enhance the sese wood face, which is finished with paint and clay. At the top of the mask's head, the artisan carves a small elephant whose trunk extends to form the mask's nose. The artisan calls the mask Shuo, which means "elephant" in the Ga language.

This wooden mask looks better than in the catalog. The colors are vibrant and the detailing is one of a kind. It adds a rich look to the area where its hanging.

"This now hangs in my bedroom!"

After going on a Safari in Tanzania I came back painted my bedroom and redecorated in an African theme. this beautiful wooden piece adds a great deal to the overall motif . It is a very good quality. The colors have inspired me to make another bed quilt using indigo blue as my focus. I am very glad I found this site.

A lovely, carefully made mask, just as pictured. Wish I know more about the origins of the design.
