Artisan Rapheal L. Commey of Ghana designs this exotic wall mask. Handcrafted out of sese wood and brass, the mask is decorated with multi-color recycled glass beads that form the shape of a bird on the mask's forehead. The mask has the shape and appearance of a monkey's face, which leads the artisan to call the mask Kua, the word for "monkey" in the Ada language.

"This now hangs in my bedroom!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

After going on a Safari in Tanzania I came back painted my bedroom and redecorated in an African theme. this beautiful wooden piece adds a great deal to the overall motif . It is a very good quality. The colors have inspired me to make another bed quilt using indigo blue as my focus. I am very glad I found this site.

A lovely, carefully made mask, just as pictured. Wish I know more about the origins of the design.
