    ITEM#: 13061331

    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

    Abdul Aziz Mohamadu replicates a mask from the Chamba people of Nigeria. This beautiful handcrafted wall mask is carved from sese wood and is adorned by copper wire and brass accents.

    Product Features:
    • Celebrates the end of drought and hunger suffered years ago
    • Copper wire and brass accents
    • Carved by hand from local sese wood
    • Measures 9.1 inches high x 6.7 inches wide x 61 mm deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    'I always knew I wanted to paint, but I wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I thought I should look into other fields too,' recalls Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. 'I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a period of time, then I picked a log of wood and started carving out a mask as I had observed him doing. This surprised Musa and he was willing to help me perfect the skill. I developed a love for this new skill, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too!'

      Purchased a few different masks and while all of them were beautifully made this mask definitely was not as pictured with regards to color. Was more of a brownish color than the rich red in the photo. I'm not returning, but i am disappointed.
