Details

Beautiful, she is the "child of the gods" as her name, Donkor, suggests. According to Akan customs, if a woman is unable to conceive, she will pray to the gods for help. When she does finally give birth, it is believed the child is a gift from the gods and is thus named "Donkor." One of the privileges of a Donkor person is to let their hair grow into long locks. K.Baka paints this expressionist portrait of Donkor, complete with facial markings meant to prevent her from dying.

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.
