Details

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.

"Highest quality, unique, very functional"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ADORE this chair. I use it as my resting chair in my living room (Im tiny), yet also put it out in the garden during the summer (tho I would not leave it out in the sun or rain, of course) . Dont leave this beauty in your cart or someone will get it. Someone spent a great deal of time carefully carving and polishing this and it shows!! PLEASE, PLEASE make an adult version of this chair. I would certainly buy it.
