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

    This regal pair of handcrafted masks is the original design of Ghana's Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. The artisan carves the masks from sese wood and adorns both with plates of embossed aluminum, featuring patterns reminiscent of tribal scarification.

    • Materials: Sese wood, aluminum, clay
    • Intended as wall decor

    Story Behind the Art:
    'I always knew I wanted to paint, but wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I looked into other fields too,' recalls Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. 'I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a period of time, then I picked up 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 art, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too.'

      I loved that this is a pair. They look great in my foyer. I've received several compliments from friends. The colors are very vibrant and blends very easily with the rest of my decor. The workmanship is impeccable and you can tell that much detail was put into the design.I am becoming a collector of African Wall Mask, and this was a great addition to my collection. I would recommend this pair to everyone.
