    Story Behind the Art:
    'Upon the death of my father, I was sent to live with one of my father's closest friends, a renowned traditional carver to the then Akwamu chief and the people of Akwamu,' Salihu Ibrahim says. 'I worked with him for about 15 years, during which time I learned the styles and techniques of the Ashanti and Akwamu people. My work began to flourish and achieve recognition, and today, I myself have apprentice carvers working with me to learn the art of carving.'

      This mask is somewhat heavy and several inches deep. I have other tribal masks, but the shape and features on this one makes it a standout. I hung mine on a Ralph Lauren metallic gold wall - The contrast of prmitive wood on metalic paint makes the mask facial features stand out and it looks amazing!
