Details

The musical traditions of West Africa inspire Salihu Ibrahim in the colorful design of this djembe drum. Its name comes from the Malian language meaning "come together." This is one of the few types of drums played throughout the different West African communities, which tend to restrict the use of musical instruments to their own group. Ibrahim carves the djembe's goblet shape from tweneboa wood and details it with an elephant walking in the savannah. It features a goatskin drumhead that is played with the hands.

"Wonderful mask"

I was very excited to receive this mask. It makes a great impression against the white wall where I wanted to place it. I love the geometric design and quirkiness of the face which evokes laughter and good humor for me.

"Powerful and a little Cute"

Photos do this no justice. The antlers (or perhaps horns) stand in contrast to the simple, but elegant, face. its one of those designs that makes you think, why couldnt I have thought of this, while in your heart you know you couldnt have done so. This is my 16th mask.

"Butterfly Bird Mask"

This is outstanding! It hangs near our stairs after coming in the front door of the house. The craftsmanship is exquisite, and the colors flow into the space. When hung on a single hook it hangs at a slight angle, but I feel that accentuates it.
