    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.

    • Tacky in Person

      In the photos this item has a worn, weathered, authentic look. The mask I received looked brand new, glossy, and strangest of all, something in the manufacturing process clearly uses newspaper, as the mask is covered in faint newsprint ... not exactly the authentic tribal look I was going for.

    • Se-Se is so-so

      A very average piece. Average design, average workmanship and average appeal. Keep looking and you'll find better

    • Bakota Brass Bird Mask (Ghana)

      I just received this mask and it's absolutely stunning! It fits in perfectly with my collection of mask on my exposed brick wall. I actually think it looks even better in person.

    • Beautiful!

      This item is true to the photo, if not better. Very lightweight, maybe 1 LB. Absolutely gorgeous. I *just* received it two days ago, so have not yet hung it, but I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase!!! Stellar.

    • Not exactly as pictured, but still a keeper.

      The mask is great, but unfortunately not as pictured. The colors are definitely on a much lighter side and the details shown around the mask are not there. Nevertheless, we are keeping as it still looks good on the wall, just not quiet as pictured. We have an extensive collection of african art and this item completes one of our walls.
