For Ghana's Emmanuel Austin Ankude, working with wood has been a hobby since he was a kid. "I was greatly attracted to woodworking...," says the artisan. "I find joy and fulfillment in using the gifts of nature to create works of art." Here he practices his skills by hand carving an African mask, taking as his inspiration the masks worn by Central Africa's Fang people for the purposes of hunting or punishing sorcerers. He captures the traditional heart-shaped face with arched brows and an elongated nose in sese wood.
