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."
