About this item: "I designed this mask in honor of father's everywhere. It is inspired by the memory of my own father, who used to tell me folk stories when I was a child, and who always showered me with unconditional love," says Juliana Akandas fondly. She carves the sese wood mask by hand, and proceeds to decorate it with painted details and embossed aluminum. Akandas' original design bears the Hausa term for father, Baba. About our Artist: Juliana Akandas became interested in Ghanaian carvings while working as a secretary, so she learned woodcarving. 'My favorite is the Akuaba doll. When given this doll, any woman who cannot have babies is believed likely to get pregnant. I was so fascinated with all this that I decided to learn the trade, and did so through a carver in Aburi. My products are unique; they have a meaning and they are backed by history. Almost all my masks have a meaning and a history behind them.'
