SKU: 261586
Christopher Nyasafo replicates the legendary Kwele mask with a feast of colors. This style of mask is from the Kwele people in Gabon, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo and features two long horns that encircle the face with a heart-shaped aura. The masks are regarded as highly protective and are controlled by the Bwete Association, who maintains social order. They are used in ceremonies which promote well-being and community. Nyasafo carves the sese wood wall mask by hand and paints it brown, yellow, green, red and grey.

    First, ordering to delivery was very good from Ghana to Florida. Kwele masks are so beautiful, no flaws, perfect. This Artisan is amazing. The packaging was so well protected and looked like a gift with ribbon. Thank You Christopher Nyasafo. I am very, very impressed.
