    Handcarved by artisans of Ghana, this mask will add a dramatic and exotic touch to your decor.

    Made with polished sese wood, a native resource in this region of Africa, the Boule mask is intricately detailed and inlaid with textured brass. Each one measures approximately 10 inches long x 6 inches wide. A hanging loop is conveniently attached to the back.

    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.

  • Not as Pictured. Poor Quality.

    The picture shows some details that are missing from the received item. The quality is rather poor. I have ordered another mask which was simply wonderful. This one is the opposite. I guess the masks are made by different people and thus their quality can vary.

  • one of my favorite pieces!

    The detail, size, and exagerated features on this piece, make it one of thee favorite mask that I currently have in my collection. It's easily worth the money. I only wish overtock.com carried thousands' of mask, of this caliber.

  • Excellent

    I love the color of the wood and the brass is a nice touch. The detail of the mask is beautiful. This is the first mask I have bought with brass and I would purchase another.

  • Gos well with a safari theme

    This mask lends itself well to a safari theme, although the metal work could have been located so as not to partially coved the eyes. If you don't stand real close, you probably won't notice it !!

  • Not my favorite

    I purchased this Boule piece because the mouth in the picture has great African quality. The mouth on the one I received is totally different, thin and angular. It is still a nice piece but, it is not what I expected and is not one of my favorites.
