Our mantra is to spread global happiness, so rest assured - we’ll do everything we possibly can to ensure you’re a happy customer. About this item: Dramatic and beautiful, this traditional mask has a contemporary feel. Ernestina Oppong Asante sculpts sese wood into a perfect oval with rectangular eyes and mouth. Smooth surfaces of brown and black are juxtaposed with a handsome, speckled field and the nose is long and slender. Representing a young man from the Ashanti tribe, the piece is named Osompa, which means "good service" in the Akan language. About our Artist: 'I was born in the eastern region of Ghana and trained in dressmaking but realized that the trade would not do well in my town,' Ernestina Oppong Assante says. 'I therefore trained for three years as a wood carver, and began developing woodcarvings on my own. Though carving has long been regarded as the preserve of men, I am glad that I have been able not only to infiltrate but to also make an impact on the trade.'
