This is a mask hand-carved in Ghana. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. I'm so glad I purchased this fine work of art. It will hang on my wall for many years to come.Read More
This is a perfect addition to my other African and Asian Masks. It was larger than I thought it would be and the details are perfect. It is wonderfully made and I commend the artist. They must be very gifted. I see that it was carved with lots of love. This would make a perfect wedding or anniversary gift. I have never seen anything like this in any store. I have it in my entrance way along with other masks. I think it is perfect for an office. I highly recommend this work of art to any collector. It is worth 10 times the price I paid for it. I will buy another for my homeoffice, before O'Stock sells them all. I rubbed a little Olive Oil on it because the inside heat is drying in the winter.Read More
