Description

"It is clear that we must find an African solution to our problems, and that this can only be found in African unity. Divided we are weak; united, Africa could become one of the greatest forces for good in the world." - Kwame Nkrumah

A mask inspired by visions of the day when all Africans throughout the Diaspora unite. The day when the Pan-Africanist dream is realized and the concept of Strength in Unity is fully understood and embraced.

This is a solid black mask featuring yellow reflective aluminum plating on the forehead and nose. The top of the mask is a smooth black wood. You will also find silver aluminum accents that represent traditional West African scarification practices.

This mask measures approximately 19.75 inches (height), 4.7 inches (width) and 2 inches  (depth). It is made out of Sese Wood and aluminum. Weighs 1 lb.

Handcrafted and imported from Ghana, your purchase helps support local Ghanaian artisans, their family and the community. Each item is handmade so there may be slight and subtle differences in size, color, and pattern. These slight differences are what makes each African Mask unique and a true work of art.

"I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me." - Kwame Nkrumah
