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.

  • very fine piece
    Verified Purchase

    This is a wooden carving of a king of an African tribe. The carving is excellent and without frills. However, the product sent to me does not correspond to the picture on the web site. I like it anyway.

  • Gift recipient seemed happy.
    Verified Purchase

    Got two of these for someone who spent three years on and off in Ghana for Peace Corps, loves the place. Since no two are said to be alike, I assumed they would be different. They are identical for all practical purposes. And note that in image they seem darkish; but, the are a pale grey, somewhat disappointing as the facial features come off blurred.

  • Interesting mask
    Verified Purchase

    I like this mask but it's not as grayish as it looks, more of a beige and light gray.

  • nice piece
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • 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.

  • Lovely piece of art.
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    This mask did not fit in with my African mask collection. It was poorly carved and I just did not like. My boyfriend saw it and loved it. Of course I gave it to him. Just happy he found a home.

  • Nice mask
    Verified Purchase

    The mask I received is carved slightly different than the photos (mostly the mouth and nose), and the colors are a bit different (the blueish color on the eye lids, and brows, is more of a charcoal color, and the hair area is also painted charcoal). It is fairly heavy and thick. Overall I am happy with the purchase and it works well for my needs.
