Details

The customs and traditions of Nigeria's Hausa people inspire the design of this extraordinary mask. Abdul Karim Star carves it by hand from local sese wood and adorns it with embossed brass and colorful jigida beads. These are usually worn around the waist since childhood to ensure girls develop a waist, according to the Hausa precept of feminine beauty. Now worn as jewelry, the jigida beads symbolize femininity, purity and beauty.
