Details

Carved by hand, this authentic African mask revels in bright, bold colors. An adinkra symbol on the forehead conveys conventional wisdom; this one is named Fihankra, from the Ashanti word for "house or compound" and is a symbol of security and safety. Godfred France designs and crafts the mask by hand.

I have it displayed in a discreet corner of my main room and it has a commanding presence. Not too big, not small at all. Just right.

I?m intrigued by the mysterious expression on this face, but I was not sure if this mask would find an appropriate spot in my home. I shouldn?t have worried. I love this piece and it just belongs in my home.

I gave this mask as a gift to add to a family members collection that I started with masks from trip to South Africa. I chose this mask because of Strength message, mission of Novica & support of artisans. Family member loved it. Very nice workmanship/quality.
