Sarjo Sowe

When he was still very young, his father began training him as a carver. He enjoyed it because of its creativity, of the freedom to let your imagination go wild. Even though his father did not force him to continue with his profession, Sarjo wanted to follow his footsteps. He is the only family member working in the little shop in the Brikama crafts market. His brothers are still too young and, like his father did with him, he does not want to force his children, though they are slowly starting to learn and they seem to like it. 25 years later, he is still working in the market. He is inspired by the rich African culture. His favorite piece is the Mandinka four-faced mask, that portrays to perfection the Gambian tradition.
