Handmade Royal Kings Wood ornaments (set of 3) - Ghana

Leaning forward to caress the forehead, a graceful bird crowns this sese wood mask. The serenely symmetrical visage boasts a narrow beard that curls in counterpoint to the slender avian body. Salihu Ibrahim uses manual tools to carve this mask with the detailed care that characterizes Guro artistry. For these C�te d'Ivoire people, masks personify the spirits of the underworld.
