These masks are known as "Atiglinyi", the Ewe word for elephant. Each has been carefully carved by local sculptors of wood in Ghana. Among the Ewe people, the elephant mask is given to someone who has accomplished difficult tasks. Available in a variety of sizes. Each is a standalone piece that also looks especially striking as a wall-mounted grouping of multiples.
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.
