This mask of mystical beauty is worn during the Edina Bakatue masquerade festival, which commemorates the founding of the city of Edina, in central Ghana. The Fante people of the region refer to the mask 'Sumpa,' meaning to serve well, and it is called upon to ask Nana Benya's continuous protection of the state and its people. Abdul Aziz Mohamadu creates an admirable African rubberwood replica featuring careful hand painted details. It is finished with white clay to achieve and antiqued look.
