Details

Sese wood, metal accents, and a beaded adinkra symbol are expertly combined by Ghanian artisan Awudu Saaed to create this vibrant warrior mask. The double diamond design is called epa and represents handcuffs, a symbol of slavery that West African chiefs have reclaimed as a symbol of law and justice. Working to support his mother and siblings, Awudu learned his craft at an early age and continues the tradition, now training apprentices of his own.

I just received the Rhinoceros Vision carving. Very beautifully done, stunning. I love the creativity, artisanship and the homage to the rhinoceros....which I, too, feel is a fabulous critter. I will proudly display this in a most prominent place in my home. Thank you
