Ghana's Robert Aidoo-Taylor presents an original mask sculpture featuring the stylized head of a deer. The piece is carved by hand and painted in shades of black, gray and yellow. Rattan rods wrapped in black cords secure the mask to a wooden base. "I created this mask out of the saying, 'Both the deer and the hunter suffer alike'", confides the artisan.
