Product Information

Details

Carved by hand, this African mask commemorates a beloved chief in the Northern Region of Ghana. Wilson Aboagye depicts him with a circular face and astute eyes as the personage speaks to his people. "Balumba was a very good person who donated to the orphanages in the North. This chief was touched by the sufferings of his people and took steps to address them," the artisan says.

Story Behind The Art -
Wilson Aboagye is a Ghanaian craftsman, born March 21, 1963. I attended Anglican primary school in 1972 and Anglican middle school in 1979, he says.I got interested in Ghanaian African carvings when I was a child, so after middle school I learned the trade through a man named Mr. Akoffour. Now I have my own workshop and am training three people. I carve different types of masks and any of them have a meaning. My products are unique and my target is to create more.
Country of Origin: Ghana
