Details

Beloved around the world, Santa Claus is also present in West Africa, where some adults dress as Father Christmas, or "Papa Bronya." This is especially popular at events and parties, as Santa is the one who hands out gifts. Ali Mohammed depicts the benevolent character as a sculpture, carved by hand of sese wood with applications of clay to give it an aged look.
