Ghanaian artisan Salihu Ibrahim creates a vivid reproduction of a magnificent kalaho bird mask. Carved by hand from native sese wood, the colorful mask features intricate carvings along the abstract face and beak of the bird. The artisan paints the mask by hand in shades of black, red, off-white, and dark orange. Revered by the Senufo people from Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa, the graceful bird stands as a symbol of peace and good fortune if he is seen.
