    Product Features :
    • Superlative craftsmanship by Ghana's Daniel Nyadedzor
    • Named Moniyor -- 'well done' -- the mask symbolizes a diligent and dedicated worker
    • Applications of brass provide a decorative accent
    • Wonderful example of the West African mask-making tradition
    • Dimensions: 4.7 inches wide x 18.1 inches long x 71 mm deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    Ghana's Daniel Nyadedzor says, 'In 1996, after finishing school, I decided to help my brother. He is a carver and had his own shop. I did all his paperwork. After working with him for a few months I realized the need for international quality standards. The business grew tremendously and we have worked together all these years. We use a hardwood known as sese for carving the masks. There are about twenty apprentices working with us. Our wood carvings are always given an antique finishing.'

      The online photo is much darker than mine is when it arrived. I think it needed more color applied to give it character.
