About this item: "Wisdom comes from those who have the patience to wait," believes Ghana's Kwaku Ofosuhene Apenteng as he repeats a saying from the Twi people of the Akwapim tribe. He designs an original mask with a long headdress wearing green tassels with yellow and red. Apenteng carves and paints the sese wood mask by hand and includes the legendary Gye nyame Adinkra symbol of the Ashanti people and acknowledges God’s supremacy above all. About our Artist: I studied business and worked for many years in the field, but I wasn't satisfied. In 1984 I was introduced to the carving profession by my cousin who was a carver and also a professional teacher. He taught me how to carve for about a year, which seemed to come naturally to me. I then started a full-time professional carving career late in 1985. I have been carving on my own ever since. I also learned how to decorate my works with brass and beads, making them unique.
