Details

Ghanaian designer Theophilus Sackey presents this charming mask that is made using local sese wood. Theophilus works with local artisans who cut and carve the wood into the attractive design, before painting and polishing the mask. A gorgeous dark teal lion roars proudly on the mask's forehead, with the same color patterning the etched cheeks. The lion is a common symbol throughout African culture, representing strength, wisdom, courage and protection.
