This original mask design from Rita Addo Zakour in Ghana features the head of an elephant at the top, its trunk extending down along the nose of the mask. The mask is carved by hand from sese wood and presented on a wood and iron stand. The artisan names her creation Fakye, which means 'forgive' in the Akan tongue.
