    Ghana's Ernestina Oppong Assante triumphs in the men's world of woodcarving with this decorative mask. Handcrafted to resemble a warrior wearing horns, this wall mask features an antique finish n the brass accents.

    Product Features:
    • Horns crown a courageous warrior who wins battles his ancestors can no longer fight
    • Mask is named 'Ntoaso' (To Continue) in the Akan language
    • Features an antique finish or brass accents
    • Crafted of Sese wood
    • Measures 21.3 inches high x 7.9 inches wide x 3.19 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    'I was born in the eastern region of Ghana and trained in dressmaking but realized that the trade would not do well in my town,' Ernestina Oppong Assante says. 'I therefore trained for three years as a wood carver, and began developing woodcarvings on my own. Though carving has long been regarded as the preserve of men, I am glad that I have been able not only to infiltrate but to also make an impact on the trade.'
