The Story Behind the Product
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

Wow! The picture of this mask does it no justice. It is beautiful! I am so impressed with the quality at such a great price. And it is so good to know that the makers of these goods are being paid fairly. I highly recommend this product.
This is a substantial piece of art. The detail is amazing. Like the previous reviewer, I too used a Q-tip and oil to highlight the eyelashes and eyebrows (thanks for the tip). The mask has a good weight on it so make sure you hang it securely.
A good buy.
Looks a little different than the picture, but a really nice piece. The color is very close, which is the most important part. The face looks a bit different with the nose being larger and the eyes looking a bit different, but overall it's a really nice mask and would recommend this, whereas on of the other 4 I ordered was not what I expected and looked nothing like the picture. This one will not disappoint.

I bought this mask as a gift and kept it for myself. I'm not a collecter, but I love this. It looks great in my living room. I don't know - there's just something about it that is hauntingly beautiful. I do not try to match things. Actually, I like to have things that maybe don't even have to complement each other. This is the only mask I have. It's displayed prominently in my living room. I think it is perfect.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? A bit darker
