Story Behind the Art:
Ghana's Awudu Saaed says, 'When I was a boy, I'd follow friends home after school. Their parents had a carving workshop. They noticed my interest and let me try sandpapering the carved items, then I began learning how to design and finish a piece. I had to drop out of school due to financial difficulties and I started working on my own. I was determined to make it and was able to put my siblings through school. Now my dream is to further my education and expand my workshop to be able to train more people.'

Small, multimedia mask
This mask is more crudely made than the photo suggests, which was a bit disappointing, although it also seems quite authentic. The mask is on the small side. It's made out of metal (tin?) with sideburns/beard of jute.Read More
