Wood ornaments, 'Punu Masks' (set of 3) (Ghana)

With this set of three ornaments, Ghanaian artisan Robert Aidoo-Taylor pays homage to the punu mask, which is used by Gabonese people to remember their ancestors. Each ornament is hand-carved from ofram wood and given a painted, rustic finish. A hole at the mouth characterizes each ornament.
