Details

Playful forms and bright colors combine in this decorative African mask the artisan titles Bibawa, meaning "goodness" in Kinsongo-congo. Ghanaian artisan Abdul Aziz Mohamadu hand carves the mask from sese wood and creates eyes and cheeks out of triangles of stamped plates of aluminum painted black accented in golden tan. The elongated, smiling face is painted ochre with brick red lips and a black forehead with additional golden tan accents. The mask is framed by a dynamic zigzag shaped border painted blue with black and red accents.

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