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

From Madam Adwoa and Onyame Akwan Dooso comes this handcrafted African mask, elegantly adorned with embossed brass. Of Akan origin, this mask is found in homes as a reminder to take one's time and be patient in life, 'towo boa se' in the Akan language.

Product Features:
  • Colors: Brown, metallic gold
  • Materials: Sese wood, brass
  • Decorative
  • Dimensions: 10.6 inches high x 4.5 inches wide x 2.4 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
Madam Adwoa became involved in handicrafts through her mother, who sold Adinkra symbols and kente cloths. While helping her mother, she began to offer a small number of woodcarvings, which to her surprise sold very well in the market. This inspired Madam Adwoa to pursue woodcarving as a career. After a period of careful instruction, she opened up her own workshop, under the banner, 'God moves in mysterious ways.'
Currently Madam Adwoa heads a team of fifteen artisans in her workshop.

  • Nice Object but Didn't Get What Was Listed!

    The price should be lowered, the brightness of the product should be enhanced, and the materials used to create this piece should be of greater quality. Thus, overall, this product has a chic carved design. But, it lacks vibrancy and luxurious appeal. Additionally, the mask doesn’t have a hook on the back for hanging, how disappointing! In a nutshell, this piece gets only 2 STARS!
