Ghanaian artisan Robert Aidoo-Taylor designs a mask sculpture in the style of the Konkomba warriors. The sculpture is hand-carved from native ofram wood, and the face and horns are painted in green and brown. Rattan rods wrapped with green cords attach the mask to a wooden base. The Konkomba peoples are known for their loyalty to other members of their tribe, as well as for their aggression towards outsiders.
