By Peter Wolfgang Nkrumah, this elegant mask design represents the Grebo people of the Ivory Coast. A bird perches on the forehead of a shy maiden whose face is adorned with brass repousse. These are worn by royal girls who are betrothed but who have not yet left home to marry.
About the Artist: "Throughout my childhood I had always been interested in wood carvings. I ventured into wood carving and undertook a two and a half year course as an apprentice carver. My mom and dad gave me their blessings and have always been encouraging me. My wife is also a great inspirer, who has always been giving me ideas of what to do and to mean something. She helps me promote my work."
The Peter Wolfgang Nkrumah Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Peter Wolfgang Nkrumah in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
