Every time I think I m finished with purchasing masks, another one captures my attention. The photo online doesn t show the detail or the alluring beauty this piece represents. So glad to add this to the collection.

"Colorful Mask"

The colors on this mask are beautiful. It is on the smaller scale but works well in a group composition between and with other art pieces. this piece rounds out my collection

"The queen"

It is rare to find Egyptian female masks. It is smaller than most male masks but is perfect for its size. Would like to see more Egyptian females, animal gods etc.

"Conversation piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These look great anywhere! They are a conversation piece as everyone wants to know where I acquired them and then I share the symbolism of the birds reaching back. They could go anywhere in my house because they look formal enough for a nice dining room.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Abdul has four children of his own and and cares for an additional four. All eight children live with him and he treats them all as his own.

Abdul has a dream of establishing an art academy for carving and sharing the African culture that is so closely tied to wood carving. So far, he has trained over 30 people but hopes that number can grow to be in the hundreds with an academy.

Since he started working with NOVICA, he has been able to grow his business. Through NOVICA and his determination, every day he gets a little closer to his goal of empowering and training others in carving.

Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to pay for improvements to his workshop.

Abdul financially supports the education of his own four children and the four other children that live with him.
