Issaka Ibrahim is inspired by the traditions and customs of Ghana's Sandema people in the creation of this dried calabash box. It is decorated with detailed masks that are only allowed to be replicated for the chief. He usually gives this type of box as a gift to the women who have served him best. Ibrahim sculpts the masks with powdered charcoal and adheres them to a dried gourd to create this extraordinary decorative box, often used by Sandema women for storing jewelry.
