Details

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.Outlined in copper, a bird poses on the forehead of this imposing African mask. An elephant crowns the figure, its trunk caressing the forehead. "A victorious warrior of the Ga people in Ghana's Greater Accra Region is given this piece to show that, apart from his bravery, he is humble," says Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo of her sese wood design. "Being brave is just not enough. You have to be dedicated and humble in life."

Story Behind the Art:
'My greatest inspiration is to preserve our rich cultural heritage,' confides Ghana's Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo. 'Initially, I wasn't using lots of different materials, but now I use recycled glass and glass beads, aluminum, brass and more. I sit and draw the mask creatively, and come up with the colors that will make it stand out.' Although my masks have cultural references, I try to enhance the looks. In Ghana, mask are seen to have spiritual beliefs attached to them, so most people wouldn't like to even hold them. But with the new coloring and designs, people are now comfortable with masks and are ready to learn more about the history associated with them.
