This charming mask takes the shape of a full moon with human features. Decorated with parallel lines, it represents a zebra. "The zebra is known to be cute and gentle. So I took the opportunity to depict it," Abdul Karim Star says. Such masks come from the Dagomba people of Ghana.
About the Artist: From the northern region of Ghana Abdul Karim Star learned histcraft from a local artisan who had become a mentor to him when he was a young boy. "With time, a friendship developed and I became fascinated with his craft -- he was a wood carver. I regarded him as a very interesting man and believed this transcended into his art. I eventually joined his group of trainees, and eventually I became a carver in my own right. My work has enabled me to support my parents, my brother and sisters."
The Abdul Karim Star Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Abdul Karim Star in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
