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.
