    Story Behind the Art:
    As a child, Godfred France used to make boats with worn-out metal utensils, which he'd float in water. 'Due to financial constraints, my parents could not further my education and so I had to drop out of school and join my uncle, who was a wood carver Thanks to the woodcarving, I've been able to educate my four children and I know that with constant sales, I'll be able to give them a brighter future than I had. This motivates me to wake up each day to carve!'

  • a great addition

    This mask is another great addition from Overstock.com. It is a little larger than I thought, but I have NO complaints. I will be stepping up my budget on my collection and I am starting here with Overstock.com. Thanks for having quality masks.

  • Nice wall art work

    Nice rich dark color. Looks great on a light colored all. Seen others in craft stores but the look and quality of this one is much better.

  • Nicely crafted

    I purchased two of these masks. They were for a wall art project I did on my living room wall. I created three framed out textured wall papered areas. These masks were for the outer two frames. I needed a certain size and color. These were perfect. I also chose them because of the meaning. The symbol on the forehead is the GYE NYAME which is the symbol for the supremacy of God from the Ghanian people. They are well carved. I am very happy with them. Even though the color stated says dark brown they look more black. The carved out areas are a light beige.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great
    • How accurate was the sizing? Spot on.

  • A little smaller than I thought

    The mask is a great addition to a small narrow wall, or grouped with others. A wonderful product, very detailed, authentic and a beautiful African mask!
