Details

 This hand-carved African wood mask is crafted from tweneboa wood by Ghanaian artisan Daniel Asante. The mask portrays a beautiful feminine character inspired by the artist's own design. The careful use of acrylic paint and polish highlight the woman's alluring hair, eyes, and lips. The artisan refers to this work as oheneba, meaning "King's Child" in Twi, a dialect spoken by the Akan people of Ghana.

Story Behind the Art:
I was born on April 22, 1969. I learned how to carve from a brother in-law Samuel in 1998 at Aburi, before then I learned carpentry in 1989 in Accra. I use sese and tweneboa woods for all my products. I specialize in the making of mask and drums. There is high demand for my products, but due to financial constraints I'm not able to produce more work to meet the demand. People come for my products for exhibitions and, when a contract is won, they bring it to me to produce. I get a commission on the amount paid, but I'm happy to work with Novica because I won't be cheated again. I have taught more than ten people how to carve and they are also well-established in this trade. I love to create new designs, so I constantly work to brersify my collection of masks and profiles. I'm married and I have four children but, I also look after five other children.
