Details

Working with local artisans in Ghana, Victoria Agyepomaa designs this stunning mask that is hand carved from sese wood to resemble a woman's face. The cheeks and forehead of the mask are covered with textured aluminum repoussé metalwork, which creates a lovely contrast against the hand-painted wood. A black adinkra symbol called gye nyame sits at the center of the forehead and represents the immortality of God. Adinkra symbols are believed to have their origin an ancient kingdom that once stood where Ivory Coast is today in West Africa.

Thank you for the lovely bowl. I love the gyae nyame sign. Only wish the bowl came in cream and black to match my decor, however i am still going to keep it because it is unique and the quality is very good.
