Details

Awudu Saaed designs this original mask in honor of tradition. He carves the sese wood mask by hand featuring painted details in yellow, green, red, and white over brown. Saaed adorns the forehead with a gong, used by many West African tribes. Akan and Ashanti linguists would use the gongs to call people's attention to an announcement from the chief.

I just received the Rhinoceros Vision carving. Very beautifully done, stunning. I love the creativity, artisanship and the homage to the rhinoceros....which I, too, feel is a fabulous critter. I will proudly display this in a most prominent place in my home. Thank you
