This hand-carved African wood mask is crafted from tweneboa wood by Ghanaian artisan Daniel Asante. The mask portrays a beautiful feminine character inspired by the artist's own design. The careful use of acrylic paint and polish highlight the woman's alluring hair, eyes, and lips. The artisan refers to this work as oheneba, meaning "King's Child" in Twi, a dialect spoken by the Akan people of Ghana.
Daniel has two grandchildren in elementary school that he supports.
Daniel Asante has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood, goatskin, polish, and sandpaper for production.
