Abdul Aziz Mohamadu transforms seasoned sese wood into a beautiful African mask. Embellished with applications of aluminum repoussé, the beautiful visage is at once serious and dramatic.

"Striking, An Honor To Have In My Home. "

Received my second mask by Abdul Aziz, "The Earth is Potent" and again another truly magnificent piece. The design, coloring and use of metal are truly striking and the piece is large giving real sense of presence hanging on the wall. Very happy with purchase, a true honor to have in my home.
