Details

The Adinkra symbol Sankofa, depicting a bird that reaches to grab an egg from its back, means "go back and get it." Reflecting on the importance of learning from the past, Ghana's Theophilus Sackey hand-carves Sankofa into the forehead of this African mask, crafted of local sese wood. He paints the mask in colors of green, black, and beige, completed with wave patterns at the cheeks.
