About this item: Stern and beautiful, this elegant mask represents the great king who founded the Nigerian town of Ife. Kobina Asmah works in native sese wood to carve the face, adding rich applications of embossed aluminum. The lips, ears and eyes are a deep red. "This is an oduduwa mask, " he says. "The word means 'For God' in the Yoruba language. " - Hand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightly About our Artist: 'My father painted, and I also have a flair for drawing and painting. This makes designing masks something that comes naturally to me, ' says Kobina Asmah. 'What I did to hone my skills was to visit art workshops where I could observe artisans. I was so eager to learn more, that I got a raw mask and started to make designs and paint it with acrylics. The outcome was very good, and that is how I started in this art form. '
