Details

Sefah Mohammed finds protection in the Coclotsu ("rooster") mask of the Vume people from Ghana's Volta Region. "They believe that as the rooster wouldn't sit back and watch the hawk catch the chicks, so will the mask protect them. The mask is worn or displayed throughout the year for protection," explains Mohammed. He carves the sese wood mask by hand and adorns it with glittering recycled glass beads and embossed aluminum.
