African Masks

Ann Rather's avatar Ann Rather

My entry this year is an original composition of antique African Mask. The masks chosen for this work represents the creativity and beautiful craftsmanship of the African people. The attention to detail on the masks they made for their ceremonies was astonishing to me. I wanted to pay homage to their culture while capturing the beauty of just a few of these masterpieces. This piece is a diptych done in colored pencil on smooth paper. It measures 35.25" in height X 49" in width and is approximately 2" in depth. Each panel measures 19 X 24.
