ITEM#: 12217836

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

Product Features:
  • Original design mask is carved of African sese wood
  • Decorative accessory has a wide forehead, suggesting the wisdom of experience
  • Mask has watchful eyes and prudently closed mouth
  • This person listens, observes and thinks before acting

Story Behind the Art:
Nana Frimpong is chief carver for the king of the Ashanti. 'I draw inspiration from traditional kente cloth designs, from my family background, and from our rich Ashanti tradition. I took up carving as a trainee under my father, Kojo Duah. Later, Professor Ablade Glover spotted my work. I ended up staying under this man's tutelage from 1970 to 1972. My dream has always been to invest in my children's education. I am happy to say that this is now possible--two of my sons are in university, the first of our family to obtain a higher education. My other primary goal is to help my community, so that the poverty that plagues them will be eradicated completely. Above all, I wish to help make it possible for peace and tranquility to prevail in my community and the nation of Ghana. My advice to the world is that we should as a matter of urgency stop all wars so as to make the world a better place for everybody to live in.'

    Love this mask. It is well made and it looks exactly as it appears on the photo. However, I did not realize it was so small. I don't have a place to put it because it's not as large as I need it to be, but I can't dispute the size because it's accurate from the profile. It's still a keeper.
