Hausa wood mask, 'Sympathy' (Ghana)
With downcast eyes, a solemn visage radiates empathy and understanding. Ornate plates of embossed brass add to the beauty of this Ghanaian mask by Daniel Nyadedzor. Named Sennu, or "Sympathy" in the Hausa language, it is a gift to a person who has experienced a great misfortune.
