Details

By Ghanaian artist K. Baka, this expressionist painting depicts a pair of women preparing for the Dipo festival. They wear elaborate beaded jewelry and cloths around their waists. Says the artist, "Dipo is a Ghanaian traditional festival celebrated by the people of Odumase in the Eastern region of Ghana. The festival is celebrated in the month of April every year. The festival is used to usher into puberty girls who are virgins and it signifies that a lady who partakes in it is of age to be married."

I purchased Elephant Child. Not only is it more beautiful in person, it also creates a great energy in the room. It is officially the coolest thing on my wall, and I have lots of cool things on my walls. I highly recommend this exquisite tapestry to anyone who loves elephants like I do.
