MATERIALS:100% Ankole cow horn + 100% Pinewood, locally sourced
MEASUREMENTS:Mask measures approximately 18 inches long by 10 inches wide and 3/4 inches deep.
COLORS:Natural light wood and natural horn
CARE:Because this piece is made with pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for its proper care. If necessary, wipe clean with a soft cloth. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
The Artisan took a beautifully polished, ethically sourced Ankole cow horn and created a face mask out of it. Due to the considerable size and circumference, and the wide range of naturally occurring colors of Ankole horns, various hand-worked items are made. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare. No animal is killed solely for its horns.
Each item is individually crafted from start to finish by the artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.
