    Carved and painted by hand, this mask is the work of Theophilus Sackey in Ghana. A ladder on the mask's forehead is an Akan symbol of mortality to remind everyone of the imperative to live a good life to become a worthy soul.

    Story Behind the Art:
    'I am a calm, humble and quiet person who also loves arts and crafts. After school, I'd stop by the workshop of a local wood carver, Salihu, to observe him and his workers as they carved different objects out of raw wood. Realizing my interest, Salihu offered to train me. Within a short time, I could finish the carved items. At a certain point in time, my parents could not afford to further my education so I decided to continue learning under Salihu and pursue a career in this field. It is my dream to one day become the owner of a well-established art workshop and be able to employ many workers to reduce the alarming rate of unemployment in my country.'
