Ghana's Emmanuel Nyadedzor handcrafts a set of three small African wood masks using his own original designs. Each one has been carved, sanded, dried, and decorated in a traditional weeks-long process. Embellished with rich earth-tone colors and hand-embossed aluminum, the trio is named Enigye, which means "happiness" in the Akan language.
