This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.A master of traditional African design, Godfred France creates an elegant mask that arises from his own imagination. Rich repoussé ornamentation distinguishes symmetrical features in an elongated face. "I designed this mask because I want people to uphold the virtue of honesty as they go about their daily activities," the Ghanaian artisan confides.
Story Behind the Art:
As a child, Godfred France used to make boats with worn-out metal utensils, which he'd float in water. 'Due to financial constraints, my parents could not further my education and so I had to drop out of school and join my uncle, who was a wood carver. Thanks to the woodcarving, I've been able to educate my four children and I know that with constant sales, I'll be able to give them a brighter future than I had. This motivates me to wake up each day to carve!' My dream is to one day have a big workshop to train a lot of people – especially school dropouts who think life has ended because their parents couldn't further their education. Their success in the art of carving would be my legacy.
