Details

By Abdul Aziz Mohamadu, two beautiful masks show the same basic design. Yet each is decorated differently — one with ornate brass repoussé, the other with colorful beadwork. He names the pair Nyamekye, which means "God's gift" in the Twi language. "This is my idea of fraternal twins," the Ghanaian artisan explains. "Children are truly a gift from God."

"god's gift of twins"

the painted mask did not resemble what was portrayed in the picture. what I got was dull and poorly painted. very disappointed. much too expensive for the quality of the masks. i suggest using glossy paint, not dull paint as was used on my mask.

"Striking Mask"

I wished for this beautiful mask for a long time, but it was seldom available. It is joy to gather art work from many cultures and feel a connection. I admit the name good woman added to my admiration. I hope I am one. Thank you Abdul.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Abdul has four children of his own and and cares for an additional four. All eight children live with him and he treats them all as his own.

Abdul has a dream of establishing an art academy for carving and sharing the African culture that is so closely tied to wood carving. So far, he has trained over 30 people but hopes that number can grow to be in the hundreds with an academy.

Since he started working with NOVICA, he has been able to grow his business. Through NOVICA and his determination, every day he gets a little closer to his goal of empowering and training others in carving.

Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to pay for improvements to his workshop.

Abdul financially supports the education of his own four children and the four other children that live with him.
