About this item: Flame-like images dance on the forehead of this enigmatic visage. Lavishly-embellished with brass repoussé, the sese wood mask curves to form a strong profile. Gaunt lips bare even rows of teeth. Juliana Akandas designs an image thought to bring good tidings among the Akan people of Ghana. She names it Ahuntor, which means "peace." About our Artist: Juliana Akandas became interested in Ghanaian carvings while working as a secretary, so she learned woodcarving. 'My favorite is the Akuaba doll. When given this doll, any woman who cannot have babies is believed likely to get pregnant. I was so fascinated with all this that I decided to learn the trade, and did so through a carver in Aburi. My products are unique; they have a meaning and they are backed by history. Almost all my masks have a meaning and a history behind them.'
