  • Decorative
  • Dimensions: 16.9 inches high x 5.1 inches wide x 2.4 inches 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 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!'

    The colors are good, but the mask is a bit small.

    The masks are absolutely perfect in every respect they make great wall art for any room or for any one who collects masks. I would not hesitate to purchase another mask. The colors were as depicted in the picture and the craftmanship is fantastic, I now have four wish I had room for more. When purchasing these masks you also help the artist provide a better life for himself and thier families.
