Description

An intense and colorful mask crafted by Saeed Musah and his team by hand in Ghana. Inspired by and paying homage to the Zulus of South Africa.

The Zulus are the largest ethnic group of South Africa and during the reign of King Shaka, they became the mightiest military force in southern Africa, increasing their land holdings from 100 square miles to 11,500. The Zulu people are known to embrace values of respect for elders, love for community and solidarity, parent-child relationships, fellowship, hospitality, and a sense of the sacred.

Our Zulu Homage mask measures 14.25 inches (Height) x 6.25 inches (Length) x 3.5 inches (Depth) and weight approximately 1.4lbs. It is crafted from Sese Wood and aluminum plates. It is intricately detailed with red, blue, green, yellow, white and orange recycled glass beads.

Each mask is handcrafted and imported from Ghana and 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.
