Salihu Ibrahim crafts a striking mask intended to protect and fight evil where it hangs. He calls the mask Toura, which in the language of Ghana's Hausa people means "Strong." Ibrahim crafts the mask by hand with sese wood featuring a jute hair and beard, as well as a headdress trimmed with raffia. Red cotton threads trim the aluminum mask over the large, expressive eyes.

"This is one of the favorite items I own."

This mask is an eye catcher. My daughter-in-law is an Art major and noticed this beautiful mask immediately upon entering my home. I have it hanging in the living room. He is our protector. He is surrounded by interesting objects from Hawaii and the Philippines. Thank you so much for adding to the mystique of my surroundings.
