    ITEM#: 19903062

    A smooth round face appears in the center of a twinkling star. The handsome contrast of shapes and textures makes this mask a fascinating example of Ghanaian art. By Walter Kuma, it features brass and copper inlay. He names it Nsoroma Pa, which means 'a good star' in the language of the Akwapim people from the Aburi area. The mask represents good luck.

    Story Behind the Art:
    My name is Walter Kuma, and I was born in Ghana on October 22, 1981. I got interested in Ghanaian and African carvings when I was a child, because they have been an important art form for many generations. Africans adore carving, because it is filled with historic and spiritual significance. So when I finished middle school I chose to learn the trade, and I was apprenticed to Mr. Kofi Adjei. Now I have my own workshop, where I design and carve the things I like. I also have three young apprentices learning the trade. I carve different masks that represent the value of the family, unity and our ancestors. African masks have a strong social, ethnic, historic and symbolic meaning. I have not attended any exhibitions personally, but the people that have bought my work have exhibited in their galleries or take them to different African-theme exhibitions.

    What is Worldstock?
