ITEM#: 946033

Celebrate your eclectic style with this handmade Ghanaian crocodile mask. This artfully detailed piece is a replica of the traditional masks used by natives during spiritual ceremonies. Ghanaians believe the crocodile is a protector spirit. Tribal stories passed by word of mouth for generations say that in ancient times the crocodile carried the king's daughter safely across the river to protect her from an invading army.

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.
