Awudu Saaed

Anwudu Saaed is a friendly but quite person that started as fan of African carvings. He would congregate at his parent's workshop where carvers, designers and finishers worked. They noticed his interest and eventually Abdul Karim Star accepted him as an apprentice. Awudu was a fast learner and was determined to master this craft so that he could support his family. Eventually, he was permitted to sell some of the works he created as an apprentice in his master's workshop at various markets in Senegal, Mali, Ghana and Burkino Faso. He used the money he made to purchase his own tools and start his own workshop. He now has three apprentices of his own.

nice masks

These masks are colorful and heavy. A nice size for a small space. Comes with a hanging strap attached. The strap is leather (I think) and a nice length so handing them is not a problem. Good way to complement a larger mask. Although a little pricey, they are very nice.
