Details

Sese wood, metal accents, and a beaded adinkra symbol are expertly combined by Ghanian artisan Awudu Saaed to create this vibrant warrior mask. The double diamond design is called epa and represents handcuffs, a symbol of slavery that West African chiefs have reclaimed as a symbol of law and justice. Working to support his mother and siblings, Awudu learned his craft at an early age and continues the tradition, now training apprentices of his own.

This mask is absolutely stunning. The metal work and beadwork is immaculate, and symbolism is so strong. I would definitely buy from this artist again! Cannot recommend this enough, especially if you love African masks.

This is a beautifully carved and painted fish. Very nice detail and stands on its own on a shelf where the sun shines that brings out its nicely detail features.

I gave this mask to my twenty year old nephew for Christmas. The carving and beadwork are absolutely exquisite, and it is something my nephew is grateful to have and proud to display. Mr. Saaed has crossed an ocean to give my nephew a gift he will treasure forever. Thank you for your artistry!
