This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

This noble mask symbolizes bravery and compassion as Salihu Ibrahim replicates the artistic traditions of the Guro people. He carves the mask from sese wood featuring the horns of a ram and a bird leaning forward.

Product Features:
  • Material: Sese wood
  • Color: Brown, dark brown, yellow
  • Decorative mask
  • Dimensions: 17.3 inches high x 6.7 inches wide x 5.1 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
'Upon the death of my father, I was sent to live with one of my father's closest friends, a renowned traditional carver to the then Akwamu chief and the people of Akwamu,' Salihu Ibrahim says. 'I worked with him for about 15 years, during which time I learned the styles and techniques of the Ashanti and Akwamu people. My work began to flourish and achieve recognition, and today, I have apprentice carvers working with me to learn the art of carving.'

  • Not As Impressive As Other Overstock Masks
    Verified Purchase

    This was the fifth mask I'd purchased from Overstock and the Novica program. Unfortunately, it was also the most expensive and the least impressive. The fact that it arrived with a crack in its wood near the base didn't help things. One thing that I didn't like about the mask once I held it and mounted it was that it's not very wide--this isn't a big (or even medium-sized) mask. The top has two curled horns and a large crane-like bird that reaches down and connects to the forehead. Overall, the mask wasn't a huge disappointment. Overstock Customer Service did a great job to rectify the issue with the damage. But the mask is just too thin; it's not wide enough, and the fact that it's designed so tall, with these horns and the bird, make it worse.
