Story Behind the Art:
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

  • Subtle difference, way too true
    Verified Purchase

    Since this is a handcrafted product, I expected "subtle" difference. What arrived is similar to what's pictured, but the differences aren't subtle; they're obvious. The style is the same, but the shape is different enough that I wasn't sure this was the item ordered until I turned it over and saw the sticker. I like what arrived enough to keep it, but the picture should be closer, and it's not a mask; it's a wall hanging.

  • Mask, flawed wood used
    Verified Purchase

    The mask is OK, unique, however, the wood used is cracked in a few places all the way through and also a chunk of wood is missing from the bottom of the mask. I will never purchase a mask online again.
