    Story Behind the Art:

    Daniel Nyadedzor has been featured in the San Antonio Express News. 'In 1996, after finishing school and a year's national service, I decided to help my brother who was a carver and had his own shop. 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.'
