PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
    Juliana Akandas designs a mask depicting a girl with bead and red cotton earrings. Embossed brass adorns her face and she smiles with excitement. From the Lwalwa tribe of southeastern Congo, such masks are presented to girls during their puberty rites. They show that the teens have reached womanhood. Both boys and girls go through initiation to become responsible adult members of Lwalwa society, but masks are worn only during male Ngongo initiation.
  • About the Artist: "I am happily married, with three children. After secondary school, I became interested in Ghanaian carvings when I worked as a secretary. I got to know almost every carver in the country. Due to the nature of my job, I visited their various workshops and showrooms and had the opportunity to observe and study various pieces, the methods and finish, as well as their meanings. Almost all my masks have a meaning and a history behind them. "
  • The Juliana Akandas Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Juliana Akandas in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
  • Sese wood, brass, beads and cotton
  • Hand crafted Artisan quality
