About this item: Master carver Wilson Aboagye finds inspiration in the legendary art and teachings of the Akan people. This type of sese wood mask is known as Towo boa se, which advises to "take your time, be patient." The bird leaning over the face signifies peace and so it completes the mask's message, which suggests one should always take time in everything one does; there is no rush in life. About our Artist: 'I became interested in Ghanaian African carvings when I was a child, so after middle school I learned the trade through a man named Mr. Akoffour,' recalls Wilson Aboagye. 'Now I have my own workshop and am training three people. I carve different types of masks and each of them has a meaning. My products are unique and my target is to create more.'
