About this item: This handsome mask by Eric Danquah features an Adinkra symbol embossed on the forehead. This is understood as "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backward. Carved by hand, the mask is named Animuonyam or "Honor" in the language spoken in Aburi, north of Accra. It is used in ceremonies for the ancestors. About our Artist: Eric Danquah showed interest in carving as a young man, and would sometimes go around helping the carvers of his community. However, his mother wanted him to be an electrician so she sent him to the city to study electronics. Soon enough, Danquah realized that this was not his calling, and he decided to return home to learn the art of carving, and dedicate his life to it. He is joined by a younger brother and sister.
