African Ghana love mask

Size: 45cm (H) - Mask above

A beautiful hand carved mask especially for lovers. The almond-shaped face is embellished with brass and accented in red. Named Sanaa ("Prove" in the Ewe language), such pieces are given to a woman whom a man loves very much. It demonstrates his feelings and is a promise that nothing will separate them. African masks, which can be traced back to Paleolithic times, have great cultural importance and are highly sought after by both museums and art collectors. Bearing religious, ceremonial, and cultural significance, African masks typically depict animal and human characteristics and are made from a variety of woods and materials.

African masks often represent a spirit and are worn by a chosen dancer during various celebrations. Connecting the living with the dead, it is believed that the spirits of the ancestors possess the wearer of the African masks. Even today, African masks play a very important and deep role in telling the history of many African people and their ancestors.

The African Love Mask is entirely hand carved from African wood and detailed with bold accents. Metallic inlays are enhanced with copper paint colors and an intricate design.
