Awudu Saaed is inspired by the art and customs of the Frafra people for the design of this extraordinary mask. Known also as Fare-fare, they reside in northern Ghana and southern Burkina Faso. In Saaed's original mask design, the antiqued sese wood mask features a jute beard around the proud visage, and diagonal ridges on the crown representing braided hair. Magnificently embossed aluminum adorns the forehead and cheeks representing tribal markings.
