Details

Seemingly surprised, this exquisite visage half closes his eyes and appears to yawn. Daniel Nyadedzor carves an appealing rotund design accentuated by elaborate West African motifs. Asepa ye means "my great in-law." Celebrants throughout Ghana use this traditional round mask widely. Nyadedzor expertly crafts it from native sese wood, carving it to shape and sanding it. The piece is then masterfully adorned with aluminum plates and finished with neutral polish. Infused with the wisdom of the ancestors, this mask adds cryptic beauty to any decor.
