    ITEM#: 13802571

    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

    Powerful in its beauty, this mask is embellished with embossed brass and aluminum, and is painted by hand. Abdul Aziz Mohamadu hand-carves the sese wood mask that replicates on the farms in Lawra, Ghana, during harvest season to frighten away robbers.

    Product Features:
    • Materials: Sese wood, brass, aluminum
    • Colors: Brown, red, yellow
    • Decorative
    • Dimensions: 16.5 inches high x 5.9 inches wide x 2.8 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    'I always knew I wanted to paint, but I wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I thought I should look into other fields too,' recalls Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. 'I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a period of time, then I picked up a log of wood and started carving out a mask as I had observed him doing. This surprised Musa and he was willing to help me perfect the skill. I developed a love for this new art, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too!'

      Actually looks better in person. Much better quality than what you will find at craft or department store.
