Details

Awudu Saaed is inspired by the art and customs of the Frafra people for the design of this extraordinary mask. Known also as Fare-fare, they reside in northern Ghana and southern Burkina Faso. In Saaed's original mask design, the antiqued sese wood mask features a jute beard around the proud visage, and diagonal ridges on the crown representing braided hair. Magnificently embossed aluminum adorns the forehead and cheeks representing tribal markings.

"I love this mask"

I bought to give as a present but it is so beautiful, I will keep it. I usually buy mask when I travel and I have a large collection, this is one of the best made and most detailed in my collection. I will definitely buy from Awudu Saaed again. Price was amazingly reasonable and it arrived exactly on the due date.

I just received the Rhinoceros Vision carving. Very beautifully done, stunning. I love the creativity, artisanship and the homage to the rhinoceros....which I, too, feel is a fabulous critter. I will proudly display this in a most prominent place in my home. Thank you
