This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

By Ghana's Eric Danquah, this beautiful mask takes a circular shape of elegant symmetry. Carved by hand and adorned with aluminum, the wood mask is named 'Odo pa,' an Akan word meaning true love.

Product Features:

  • Color: Brown
  • Decorative
  • Dimensions: 11.4 inches high x 10.2 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
Eric Danquah showed interest in carving as a young man, and would sometimes go around helping the carvers of his community. However, his mother wanted him to be an electrician so she sent him to the city to study electronics. Soon enough, Danquah realized that this was not his calling, and he decided to return home to learn the art of carving, and dedicate his life to it. He is joined by a younger brother and sister.

    I am extremely pleased with the mask I received. The size is almost exactly as specified so it fit the planned space on my wall perfectly. The block of wood used was quite substantial so it has wonderful depth, extending from the wall about 4" with the wood itself being 2" thick or more in some places. The carving and the design on the metal bands are detailed while maintaining a rustic quality and there is just enough use of turquoise paint to give it a pop of color without being distracting. The only difference between the mask shown in the photo on the website and the one I received is the finish - the one in the photo appears to have a shiny, polished finish to the wood, mine has a dull, matte finish (which I quite like). I would definitely consider purchasing others to add to my collection of tribal art.

    I think this mask could be cheaper for its size, but it fits exactly what I needed. The color wasn't as rich as the photogragh.
