Details

Inspired by Queen Yaa Asantewaa, the famous queen mother of Ghana who ruled during the Ashanti Empire, Winfred Ansah Okoampah designs this striking African mask. Local artisans hand-carve this mask from sese wood that is given a solid black finish, depicting the face of Queen Asantewaa with a natural African hairdo. Accents of aluminum are embossed with intricate designs, evoking traditional scarification practices.

This wonderful achievement from Winfred Ansah Okoampah captures the essence of love and trust between father and son without relying on superficial sentiment or cliché. This is the work of a master carver who understands human emotions at a profound level.

"So beautiful and sophisticated"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I debated a bit before initially purchasing the mask due to the slightly higher cost, but once I saw it in person I think every cent was worth it. The mask is beautifully done, sophisticated, and makes a stunning centerpiece on one of our smaller walls. The mask itself is pretty large and demands attention. It contrasts beautifully with our white wall and neutral tone furniture.

"As expected simply lovely"

I was waiting on this item to arrive and now that it has it hangs gloriously on my wall. Words I do not have enough. The bird that is placed upon the top of the head mask draws a person in to want to see more. I would buy masks made by him again.
