    ITEM#: 947318

    Add a touch of Africa to your decor with this decorated Frafra Mask. This tribal mask was hand-carved by members of the Frafra tribe of Northern Ghana. The two distinctive marks on the face of the mask signify special intelligence and wisdom. This piece is sure to become a favorite for years to come.


    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.

    • Handcrafted. Much Depends on the WInd.

      If every customer received a mask that looks identical to the one in the photo, this review would've turned out differently. But these are hand-made masks, and they're not slapped together on an assembly line. This is good to a certain extent because it allows people around the globe to share their talents and crafts with us and, hopefully, be compensated fairly. The first mask I received was not finished. Their was a chunk of wood missing from its eye, and that "V" pattern you see on its forehead was mostly incomplete. I returned it for a second mask which was much more to my liking. Yes, there were still small variations that set it apart from what I saw on Overstock's site, but it was good enough. If you order any of these masks or other products, please understand that the Overstock photo is likely a perfect example. What you receive in the mail most likely won't look like what you see online. But that's okay with me. As long as the item isn't damaged or half-worked, I'll accept the little variations and inconsistencies. I believe any item that's hand-crafted will likely exhibit these shortcomings.
