These hand carved ceremonial tribal masks are made by the Ashanti people in Ghana. The two masks are carved as a female and male pair, symbolizing a married couple, and bear Adinkra symbols on the bottom of each piece. The bird carved atop the larger piece (the male) is called “Sankofa” is is regarded as a symbol of peace and prosperity.
These pieces are ideal gifts for a couple-to-be and are large enough to nicely frame a doorway in a home. Please contact us to see more large carved wooden pieces kept in the kanju vault.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
