Seni Awa Camara

Summary
Seni Awa Camara (born c. 1945) is a Senegalese sculptor from the Diola ethnic group. She was born in Bignona, where she still lives and works. She creates sculptures in clay in her front yard, then fires them in an open-hearth kiln before displaying them around her house. The pieces, ranging in size from 12 inches tall to 8 feet tall, represent personal symbols. She has authorized the use of bronze castings of her work since the terracottas are too delicate to travel. Camara's work is in The Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC) of Jean Pigozzi. Solo exhibitions
