  • West African Mask (Ghana)

An authentic West African mask featuring an Adinkra symbol. This mask is hand carved out of Sese wood by master Ghanaian artisan Theophilus Sackey. The mask is embellished with aluminum and alludes to ritualistic African scarification. Our Swords of War mask features an Adinkra Akofena symbol on its forehead. Akofena is a symbol of courage, valor and heroism. It can also represent the authority of the state. It measures 17 inches (Height) x 5.5 inches (Length) x 2.4 inches (Diameter).

This item is Fair Trade Certified and each purchase helps support Theophilus Sackey, his family and team. Due to each African mask being hand made there may be slight and subtle variations in color, pattern or size.

I am a calm, humble and quiet person who also loves arts and crafts. I was born on November 22, 1985 in a suburb of the Greater Accra region of Ghana. When I was in primary school, I admired art and used to draw animals and images that I found. After school, I'd stop by the workshop of Salihu Ibrahim to observe him and his workers as they carved different objects out of raw wood. They really caught my attention, and I visited the workshop daily. Realizing my interest, Salihu offered to train me. I was most interested, so learning the skill was not a difficult thing. Within a short time, I could finish the carved items. At a certain point in time, my parents could not afford to further my education so I decided to continue learning under Salihu and pursue a career in this field. What inspires me most is when people express appreciation for my designs. It is my dream to one day become the owner of a well-established art workshop and be able to employ many workers to reduce the alarming rate of unemployment in Ghana.
