The stunning design of this original wall mask is by Ghanaian artisan Eric Danquah. He crafts the mask by hand, carving it fromsese wood and adorning it with embossed aluminum on the cheeks and forehead. The impressive headdress is centered by a bird looking down, which in Danquah's design represents the legendary Sankofa symbol. One of the most renowned of Adinkra symbols of Akan origin, Sankofa - literally meaning "go back and retrieve it" - invites to reflect on the past to build a better future.

"Sankofa Invitation"

This mask is as beautiful as the picture depicts - even more so. It is very striking, and quite often I will just stop and admire it on the wall. I look forward to building a collection of these beautiful masks.

My mask arrived in a very timely manner. The carved mask is beautifully carved and is perfect for my decor.


Dear Eric, I received my mask yesterday and I love it! It is exactly what I wanted. Really nicely done! Thank you for brightening my day!
I was hoping that the mask would not look almost as gold as it looked in the image. But when i received it, it looked very neutral in tone which is what i wanted. Great workmanship. Now on to shadow box framing it... Eric me da woase from your home girl.... :)
