    Story Behind the Art:
    'After completing a course in auto mechanics, getting a job was difficult and neither my parents nor I could afford the high cost of the machinery I would need to set up on my own. I struggled by doing menial jobs, but I managed to save what I could until I had enough money to buy a small piece of land and raise a wooden store. I started buying finished carvings, and in the evenings I learned to carve these beautiful items. My inspiration comes through dreams, so when I wake up I immediately put the design on paper in order not to lose the idea.'

      Fair to good craftsmanship. Funky coating - paint/stain? Overstock shipping is another story. Arrived nearly 10 days after maximum prediction. 25 days from Ghana to CA.

      Well carved, I think its a little on the dark side the colors dont stand out well. My husband thinks it looks like a scorpion crawling up the wall. Humm....... I like it, Its unique and looks good on the wall with the other masks I have. I also love that its part of NOVICA.
