Inspired by the Christmas story, Daniel Nyadedzor depicts the shepherds who came to worship baby Jesus. He creates distinguished personages of varying personalities, in the style of traditional masks. Sculpted of sese wood, these ornaments bring a distinctive African touch to holiday décor.
Because each ornament is individually carved and painted by hand, the features may vary slightly.
Emmanuel Nyadedzor has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2000 and the most recent for $1200. Proceeds were used to purchase wood, metal plates, polish and paint to continue production.
