Why did you choose this product?
I purchased this beautiful mask because I wanted to place it on a shelf. It goes well with the other African art that I collect. It is the only mask that is not hanging from my walls. Slanted a bit, but I made adjustments that made it fit perfectly on may shelf. Details are crafted very well....

The image doesn't do this mask justice. It's beautifully hand carved and the bit of metal artwork on the face enhances the child's face. It notes that you can display it on a table or 'hang' it on a wall, which is what I did, but I first had to add screws to the back and picture wire. I Highly recommend this art piece.Read More

How to Decorate Your Home for Kwanzaa
Kwanzaa is meant to be celebrated with family and friends as a way to honor the past and look forward to the future. One important part of celebrating Kwanzaa is decorating the home with traditional seasonal decor. Kwanzaa holiday decor incorporates traditional symbols of African American heritage, both old and new. For example, a kinara symbolizes the African American past, present and future while authentic African folk art is displayed to honor African American roots. Tribal masks, hand-carved statues and wooden fruit bowls from Ghana and other areas of historical significance throughout Africa are often displayed as meaningful decorative accessories during the holiday season as well as home decor all year round.
