Brilliant color conveys both joy and gratitude in this elegant mask by Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. Symmetrical features narrow from wide eyes to a narrow chin and voluptuous lips, while aluminum repoussé creates a triangle on the wide forehead. 'This mask is used by the Goroshie tribe in Nigeria during their harvest festival called Motaka Rafi,' the artisan explains. He names this exquisite piece Bawule – a Hausa word meaning 'God gives.'
