This singular work of African wall art from Ernestina Oppong Asante appears to be three masks, but is in fact all one piece. The artisan carves a zebra, an elephant and a giraffe from a single piece of sese wood and paints each of them by hand.
Ernestina supports and provides for her grandchildren's education.
Ernestina Oppong Asante has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1600 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood and paints, as well as leather for the drums.
