Details

Inspired by the sankofa, a traditional Ghanaian adinkra symbol, Sinclair Yao Daley creates a colorful African mask. He carves the image from seasoned sese wood and adds earrings of multicolor cotton thread and recycled glass beads. Sankofa means "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backward.

"I Absolutely Love This Piece"

I purchased this mask a couple years ago, and I am just now finally expressing my appreciation. The colors and lines of this piece are outstanding. I love how the cheeks are framed by the multicolored tassels. This mask has become one of my favorite possessions. Thank you for your work and for sharing your wonderful story. It seems that you also do truly great work for your community.

"Bundu woman"

After visiting Sierra Leone and dancing with the Bundu women group, I fell in love. This is a great and authentic carving, one of very few offered from Sierra Leone.
