Details

The stunning design of this original wall mask is by Ghanaian artisan Eric Danquah. He crafts the mask by hand, carving it fromsese wood and adorning it with embossed aluminum on the cheeks and forehead. The impressive headdress is centered by a bird looking down, which in Danquah's design represents the legendary Sankofa symbol. One of the most renowned of Adinkra symbols of Akan origin, Sankofa - literally meaning "go back and retrieve it" - invites to reflect on the past to build a better future.

This mask is as beautiful as the picture depicts - even more so. It is very striking, and quite often I will just stop and admire it on the wall. I look forward to building a collection of these beautiful masks.

Love the table, but was delivered with a chip out of one of the elephants leg, so it?s currently hidden away against a wall until I can try and repair it as the light color wood shower starkly.
