"I offer this mask in honor of the Creator, to symbolize his omnipotence," says Eric Danquah as he adorns it with the legendary Gye Nyame Adinkra symbol. Danquah designs and carves the sese wood mask by hand, decorating it with embossed aluminum plates. He calls it Me gye di, which in the Akan language means "I believe."
