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.

  • Hand carved Bundu Mask

    I purchased this mask for the entry way of our stairwell. My 14 year old son loves it. At first I thought it would be to long but it is just big enough to hold it's own and not over powering. I love the details on the face and the smell of the wood. It was a great buy for the price!

  • Authentic!

    This mask is breath taking. If you're into Africana art, it will probably blend in well with your other pieces. I am giving this gift to my aunt: a Professor of Latin and African studies and I hope it will be a welcomed addition to her collection. She just returned from Ghana in the fall so I am sure she will appreciate it as much as I do. The craftsmanship is wonderful.

  • Very disappointed....

    Very excited to receive item because if I liked this one i had the intension of buying a few more. The finish in the photo is beautiful but the one i received was dull brown with some gold splashed on to it. There was also a large chip on the left side, why didn't the person that wrapped this notice it? I filled in the chip with marker and it wasn't as noticeable. Now there is nothing on the back of the mask to allow you to hang it on the wall. I would not recommend this mask to anyone.

  • favorite mask yet

    I have 7 masks in the house now and this is by far my favorite.. Something about it is just really cool. The color is darker than the light brown shown in the picture, but I prefer the actual color. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this mask, whereas I've been disappointed with a few others.
