Buraimoh Gbadamosi (1925-2014) photographed through a detail in the wall diving his house from Susanne Wenger's on Ibokun Road in Osogbo. He was a master stone carver who developed his enormous talent as a member of the New Sacred Art Movement. Originally a tailor by trade, he was encouraged by Wenger to try his hand at wood carving, and his first works were commissioned for her house. Gbadamosi was also one of Wenger's closest friends as well as an artistic collaborator and 'soul mate'.
