Details

Carved by hand, this authentic African mask revels in bright, bold colors. An adinkra symbol on the forehead conveys conventional wisdom; this one is named Fihankra, from the Ashanti word for "house or compound" and is a symbol of security and safety. Godfred France designs and crafts the mask by hand.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Godfred supports himself and five others in his family. Since the majority of his family's income comes from NOVICA, each order helps improve their livelihoods.

Godfred France has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $450 and the most recent for $900. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood, metal plates and sandpaper for production.

With his sales from NOVICA, Godfred is able to support the education of his three children as well as the daughters of his deceased sisters.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Godfred hires assistants during periods of high demand.

"Beautiful art!"

I have it displayed in a discreet corner of my main room and it has a commanding presence. Not too big, not small at all. Just right.
