Working with local artisans in Ghana, Victoria Agyepomaa designs this beautifully bold mask that is hand carved from sese wood and painted by hand. Triangular brass plates adorn the sides of the face, while recycled glass beads decorate the forehead in a brilliantly colorful pattern. Victoria names her design sithembiso, which is a Zulu word meaning "promise."
