    Story Behind the Art:

    Daniel Nyadedzor has been featured in the San Antonio Express News. We work with a type of hardwood known as sese for carving the masks. There are about twenty people working with us, most of them apprentices. The nature of our work involves the chipping of wood to get a desired figure or shape. It is polished and sandpapered for a smooth and quality object. Red and black emulsion paint is then used for the finish. The image is first sketched on paper though sometimes, our customers also come up with interesting ideas, too. Our products are always given the antique finishing, which our customers especially love, and their kind remarks and comments spur us on to do better.

    • Dissapointed

      I was really waiting with such anticipation for this piece, especially since I collect "fertility" symbols from Ghana and thought this would be good to mix up my colllection with. When I finally received it, I was dissapointed! I could have gotten this for $10 or less at a store like Burlington Coat Factory, Ross or similar. I'm going to keep it just because I like the concept behind its sale - Worldstock Fair Trade.
