"LOVE MY ASHANTI WARRIOR QUEEN MASK"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

During my senior year at the University of Illinois, I decided to take an easy course. I was getting burned out. So I signed up for an African Art History class. That class turned out to be my most difficult course and, after two weeks, and flunking a quiz, I found out it was an advanced course. I could have switched classes, but had already fallen in love with the cultures we studies. Most memorable was the Ashanti people. Years later, while in a store, I pointed to an object and said to my husband, Thats Ashanti. I hadnt yet confirmed my declaration. He picked it up, looked and was impressed that I could identify it as to which culture created it. Ive been buying from Novica for years. This is one of my treasures. Beautifully detailed and constructed. Im looking for another piece as well. Thanks, Abdul for your wonderful art!

I was able to purchase the elephant, rhino and giraffe by the the same artist at a garage sale. This is a perfect companion to all my African art. Love it

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Abdul has four children of his own and and cares for an additional four. All eight children live with him and he treats them all as his own.

Abdul has a dream of establishing an art academy for carving and sharing the African culture that is so closely tied to wood carving. So far, he has trained over 30 people but hopes that number can grow to be in the hundreds with an academy.

Since he started working with NOVICA, he has been able to grow his business. Through NOVICA and his determination, every day he gets a little closer to his goal of empowering and training others in carving.

Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to pay for improvements to his workshop.

Abdul financially supports the education of his own four children and the four other children that live with him.
