The Story Behind the Product
Nana was born to a family of 9 children in the town of Kumasi in Ghana, West Africa. His parents divorced when he was only 8 years old and Nana became so rebellious that his mother sent him to live with his father in Tamale (in the Northern region of Ghana) when Nana was 12 years old. It was there that he developed an interest in art. He dropped out of school when he was 14 and started training with a master carver in Tamale. In 2000 Nana began selling his products through Worldstock. Nana is now married with 3 children and lives in Accra, Ghana. He is now a master carver with his own shop and 10 employees. Nana¿s life has been so improved since he began working with Worldstock that he named his son after his contact at Overtsock.com.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I purchased two masks made in Ghana, and was very impressed with both! The workmanship is excellent, and the price was within reason. It's nice to be able to buy things from other countries that are authentic.
Our son collects African masks & we are no longer able to find any in local stores that are in good condition & reasonably priced. This is the first time I have used Overstock.com & I was very happy with this transaction. Both masks I ordered were in excellent condition & arrived very quickly. I would definitely recommend Overstock.com to friends & family!
Thank you for your question myt1977. The average height of the Frafra Hand-crafted Traditional Sesse-wood Tribal Mask is 11 inches. But some can be a little less or higher. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on May 2, 2013
