By Abdul Razak, this elegant sculpture depicts an African mask. Aluminum repoussé adorns the cheeks and forehead while copper inlay forms the brows and defines the forehead. Crowned by a bird, this handcrafted figurine is the artisan's own design. He names it "Anoma ti" which means "bird's head" in the Twi language spoken by Ghana's Akan people.
