Meaning "Knowledge" in Akan, the "Nimdie" is an original mask designed by Ali Mohammed. "I want to emphasize the importance of acquiring knowledge and the need to educate our children," says the Ghanaian artist. He carves the sese wood mask by hand and paints it blue with red eye brows, nose and lips, and black hair.
Ali financially supports the education of two of his own children and two others in primary school.
Ali Mohammed has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $2000.
"I love this goddess!"
The workmanship is just beautiful, exactly as pictured...hand painted, vibrant, exotic...you will ove it...worth every penny! I hung it above my computer in a room where the colors are red and teal, and its perfect!
