Ghanaian wood mask, 'Courageous Warrior'

Item # 46483
No longer available
Majestic horns rise above his stern countenance, emphasizing his intense expression. Ntoaso (to continue) is a courageous warrior, winning the battles that his ancestors can no longer fight.

Ernestina Oppong Asante fearlessly establishes her niche in a field dominated by men. This piece is patiently carved from naturally dried sese wood, adorned with brass and finished white clay and yellow emulsion paint to achieve its distinctive antique appearance. A newly elected warrior leader, this mask evokes admiration and contemplation in the home interior. Made in West Africa.

Artisan: Ernestina Oppong Asante

Artisan Ernestina Oppong Asante 'I was born in the eastern region of Ghana and trained in dressmaking but realized that the trade would not do well in my town,' Ernestina Oppong Assante says. 'I therefore trained for three years as a wood carver, and began developing woodcarvings on my own. Though carving has long been regarded as the preserve of men, I am glad that I have been able not only to infiltrate but to also make an impact on the trade.'
