This simple but striking mask is the original design of Ghana's Anna Yawson. The elongated monkey face is hand-carved from native sese wood and painted in black and bold orange. Adoo means "monkey" in a dialect spoken by the Ga tribe of Ghana.
My sister and her husband collect ethnic masks, and this one is unlike any they have. I liked that it's so narrow, which should make it easy to find a place for it. Also, their other masks are mostly bare wood, and the color on this gives it more of a presence, even though it's smaller than their other pieces.
