Originating from the Ashanti region of Ghana, the Akan Comb Mask displays the face of a person, highlighted with embossed features and textures that embody the Baule sculpture style of the Akan people. The image of the comb represents personal beauty, refinement, and a desire to please.
Traditional masks have been incorporated within African ceremonies and cultural celebrations for thousands of years. Today, these artefacts are often used as a stylistic counterpoint to contemporary styles, adding an artisanal element to modern designs.
