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.

These are each a little different and go together beautifully. I looked for a long time for just the right thing to go in that spot and these fit the bill perfectly. So glad to find them on Novica and support one of the awesome artist around the world!

"Love the bird"

this mask has a bird looking backwards. This shows that our past must be learned to forward. I totally believe we should review and learn from our past at least who we are. I am studying my genealogy and this fits perfectly in my office.
