Marka People can be found in Mali and they are of both Soninke and Mande speaking people. They inhabited the northwest of present day Mali. Marka Soninke trace their ancestry far back to the Ancient Ghana Empire in the 9th Century AD.

According to B.K. Sillah one of the first Soninke settlements was established in Ancient Ghana around 750 AD it is claimed because of the Beber persecution the Soninke dispersed into a smaller groups within the neighboring regions, the three main offshoots of the Soninke are the Marka, Nono and Aser they also broke down into smaller groups.

3D AFRICAN MASKS collection image

Most African masks that were taken from the continent are now in the homes of private collectors and museums. The descendants of these mask makers do not have the privilege of seeing what their ancestors carved. Even though the masks were aesthetically appealing, they were functional to the tribes that used them.

African masks represent ideas that are still relevant today. I am making the most rare and most expensive masks available to new collectors in 3D. 50% of Proceeds will be contributed in setting up an Innovation Hub, in Ghana. This Innovation Hub will be a place where young creatives who are the descendants of these mask makers will come to, to develop their ideas and bring them to fruition using technology. Creatives will receive training material to develop their talents and creative abilities.
