Story Behind the Art: As an artist, Rita Addo Zakour proudly includes African themes into her designs. 'Having the edge of doing more designs inspires me, and I have taught this art to a number of people. The basic materials I use are sese wood and aluminum sheets. My favorite things in life are cooking and being with my family. I dream that we'll one day have enough so I can also give back to others.'

So is this mask a hand carved "African" mask or was it created by an artist (Rita Addo Zakour) to mimic a mask made in African by an African artisan? I love the look of it but I'm particular about what I buy and I try to only buy authentic African art. What I read above is that Ms Zakour includes African themes in her designs but it doesn't say if she is African.
