Details

The Bambara people of Mali suggest the djembe drum gets its name from the saying, Anke djé, anke bé which translates as "everyone gather together in peace" - thus defining the djembe's purpose. Christopher Nyasafo celebrates this legendary style of African drum with this decorative mini-djembe, in black and yellow. He hand-carves the goblet-like shape of the drum from tweneboah wood, and gives a weathered appearance to the leather drumhead, which is affixed with iron rings wrapped in cotton.

Large, bright, but soft colors in a modern mask. Goes great with all my abstract art and my other tribal pieces.

Modern and unique abstract design, that adds to my tribal arts collection, and goes with all my modern abstract art as well. As pictured here, the colors are really beautiful and well designed with lots of texture. Finely crafted!

This mask is beautiful. By far the most interesting I have bought from Novica. Larger than I expected and love it. Everyone that visits my home complements it. Great work.
