This elegant wall mask from Ghana is named Nketiabah, a name given to girls of the African Fanti tribe. Designed by Rita Addo Zakour, the mask is hand-carved of sese wood, featuring a long shape with a textured face. Embossed aluminum and brass accentuate the mask around the edges and at the forehead.
