"The idea behind creating this mask is to let the world know that it is good to let go of any wrong done unto you, rather than paying wrong with wrong," explains Ali Mohammed of his original mask. He carves the wall mask by hand featuring an ornate headdress and embossed aluminum on the forehead and cheeks. He paints it in yellow, blue and black. Mohammed calls his design "Bakomi," which in Hausa means "let go."
