Inspired by the masks worn by the people of New Guinea who live around the Sepik River area, Robert Aidoo-Taylor designs this necklace for men. The array of masks from this region gives social and spiritual significance to ancestral faces. Aidoo-Taylor names the mask "Wofa Adam" (Uncle Adam) and carves the ofram wood pendant by hand featuring a gaping mouth and big closed eyes. The pendant is worn on an adjustable black cord.
