Collection: Traditional African Handcrafted Wooden Art

Wooden masks, which might either be of human, animal or legendary creatures, are one of the most commonly found forms of art in western Africa. In their original contexts, ceremonial masks are used for celebrations, initiations, crop harvesting, and war preparation. 

Traditional African wood carving reflects the culture of an authentic and original philosophy. It gives specific visual form to a highly organized system of thought with its own logic and harmony.
