This original mask by Sefah Annwhar exudes a happy sense of serenity. Annwhar calls his creation 'Farin Chiki,' meaning 'Happy Moment' in Hausa. The talented Ghanaian artisan hand-carves the sese wood mask and adorns it with painted details over clay textures.

Story Behind the Art:
My name is Sefah Annwhar and I was born in Accra. I became interested in art at a tender age. I used to play with scraps of wood in my fathers workshop when I was a child. I learned how to carve during junior high school. During weekends and vacations, my father showed me the basics. I was so excited to learn and this helped to improve my skills quickly. I realized that carving gave me the opportunity to be creative and I loved it. I can create anything I dream up and this sparks my creativity. I dont teach any students yet, but hope to pass on my knowledge of carving. I stay up late with my dad when he receives many orders. It gives me the chance to practice my craft, allowing my hands to give shape to what Ive been taught earlier in the day. This is how I mastered my craft. At first, it was confusing and challenging, but the more I practice, the easier it becomes. I get my inspiration from my father and from nature. I use sese wood, aluminum, brass and clay. These materials are easy to obtain from the market. My dream is to train people carving and designing. I also want to feed the poor.
