The design for this mask is based on those of the
Fang people of Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and Gabon. Fang masks typically
feature elongated, heart-shaped faces and long, fine noses. This one, crafted
in Ghana by Master Carver Nana Frimpong Boady, is a modern take on the
traditional Fang style. Nana, who serves as the Chief Carver to King Otumfao Osei Tutu II, opened up shop in 1971.
