Baron Samedi Masks from Haiti + “Spoonboy”
Handmade by a child artist in Port-Au-Prince, “Spoon Boy” reflects the ingenuity of Haiti’s artisans. Using all found and recycled materials, this piece is truly one of a kind.
Baron Samedi, master of the dead and giver of life, is one of the principal spirits (or loa) in Haitian Vodou folklore. This set of two metal masks depicting the Baron in his signature top hat was handmade in Village Artistique de Noailles, an artist village in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti.
