Details

Radiant colors bring this mask to life as Abdul Razak lets his imagination flow freely. He carves the face from seasoned sese wood, adding brass inlay to the sides. Posed on the forehead is a beautiful blue bird. "This is my own interpretation of a mask used by the Dan people of Liberia, Guinea and the Ivory Coast," the artisan explains. "Such masks are used to regulate disagreements and to protect children."

"A Quality Small Mask"

I like this mask a lot, I just wish the colors matched the ones I see on my computer monitor. In real life, the colors used on this mask are more muted, less vibrant. However, it is still a nice mask.
