    Product Features:
    • Slender-faced maiden is demure with half-closed eyes
    • Inspired by Baule art and is used during funeral rites
    • Anii is a name given to a young girl in Cote d'Ivoire
    • Crafted of sese wood
    • Measures 12.2 inches high x 6.7 inches wide x 3.9 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    Ghanaian artisan Victor Yao Delanyo was unable to study beyond elementary school due to financial difficulties. 'I joined my brother-in-law who was a master carver, specializing in traditional African objects. Since 1999, I've worked independently with ten experienced carvers. We use a hardwood known as sese for carving our masks. We use sandpaper and polish to achieve a smooth object of good quality. I use paint, metal plates and sometimes clay to decorate and preserve our works.'
