SKU: 79869
Posing on the forehead of a handsome visage, a smaller face represents a dependable friend. Horn-like appendages above and below extend the line of the mask, and plates of brass add visual texture. Kwaku Ofosuhene Apenteng creates an image he calls Adamfo, 'friendship' in the Akan language. Horns are said to represent power in Ghanaian society, and men from royal families often wear these masks as part of their ceremonial attire.
