Details

With thoughtful features, a personage recalls the past and pays silent tribute to the ancestors. Applications of glowing brass adorn the forehead, and the cheeks are covered with recycled glass beads in brilliant colors. "This mask is used by the people of Saltpond in Central Ghana during the Odambea festival," Abdul Aziz Mohamadu explains. "The festival commemorates the migration to their present settlement." He names the piece Kia We Kye – "remember your past" in the Akan language.

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