Product Features:

  • Color: Brown
  • Decorative
  • Dimensions: 13.5 inches high x 7 inches wide x 2.8 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
Ghanaian artist Frank Obiri-Ntow has exhibited his work in the United States and in Germany. 'I used to assist the late Mr. Agya Osei at his workshop and I used to ask him so many questions. His answer was always the same, 'Just learn  this is a good skill to have. I now have apprentices under my care. I think I have a sense of intuition with this art, and whenever it comes, I take advantage of it and put it to work.'

    I never review an item immediately... I wait at least a year and for this items it has been many years. This is a must for any mask collection that demands a variety of size, shape, color, depth, etc.
