Product Information

Details

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. Solemn and handsome, this mask is worn by the Ashanti King's Asafoatse, whose job is to welcome the monarch's new bride. Custom dictates that he may not see the new Ashantihene when she first arrives, so he meets her Nr Boy in the late 1980s. Although I was still a schoolboy, I managed to combine the learning of carving with my schooling. I found no hindrances, and this went on a long way in inspiring me, as the clock ticks on. My materials are mostly wood, paint, polish, sea sand, brass and aluminum. My processes involved carving, sandpapering, polishing, painting, plating and finishing. There are a lot of factors that motivate me but the significant one was to depict the uniqueness of African history for our younger generations. Although life is not as easy, with the almighty Allah, I've overcome almost all the challenges. I have trained a lot of carvers who are still carving and making ends meet for their families. I have a big family with seven children, and they are living in a happy environment. Sefah Mohammed's works have been exhibited throughout Ghana as well as in foreign venues. He has received a number of awards.
