Details

This splendid jewelry box recognizes the omnipresence of god through gye nyame, the Adinkra symbol on the lid that means, "I am afraid of none except God." Deeply symbolic, Madam Adwoa has calls the box Effia, the name given to a baby girl born on a Friday. Madam Adwoa and the artisans at her workshop, Onyame Akwan Dooso, carve the sika adaka (jewelry box) from sese wood with hand-made tools. Once the desired shape has been achieved, it is delicately carved with traditional patterns and protected with mansion polish.

The Patience mask I ordered is quite lovely. Wonderful attention to detail and well-made. I am going to give it to my dad for his birthday. He is injured at the moment and could certainly use the reminder to be patient. Thank you
