Details

Ghanaian artisan Kwasi George creates this stunning mask that is made using local sese wood and inspired by the Festac mask of Queen Idia. He carves the wood by hand, before painting the eyes, lips, and footwear in red. Local clay is used to add an attractive distressed finish to the mask. The head of the mask features eight small faces, which serve as the messengers to the chieftain, and a seated, pensive monkey at the center.

"Cherished Crow"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a gorgeously carved crow that is very special to me! The sculpture itself is actually bigger than I expected, and looks so wonderful next to our indoor plants. It feels indebted to nature and also a celebration of crows ? their wonderfully unique, crafty and inquisitive personalities, not to mention their beauty. Traditionally carved and expertly crafted, there are many details like the intricate feather carvings that do not interfere with how smooth and sleek the sculpture itself is. Thank you so much to Kwasi George for this beautiful gift.
