Emmanuel Nyadedzor creates this set of three petite African masks using his own original designs. Each one is crafted in a traditional weeks-long process. Carved and painted by hand, they are embellished with the rich textures of aluminum repoussé. The Ghanaian artisan names the trio Sefam, which means "my soul has favored me" in the Ewe language.
