I love this plate so much. It just makes me smile to look at it. Beautifully made, it includes a hanging strip. I had it on my wall within 5 minutes of receiving it - 4 1/2 of those spent unwrapping! Thank you for my lovely plate.
Perfect for a beach house
I gave this piece to my daughter who lives in Hawaii. She hung it on a bamboo rod. It looks great and is the perfect casual accent for a tropical themed room.
Beautiful piece of art
Love the artwork Good Akan Mother. It arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the picture online. I also like that it is signed by the artist. I will definitely be investing in a glass frame to protect this beautiful work!

Hand Crafted Batik Wall Hanging Cotton, "Nye Ke Bi"$69.99
In this batik on cotton wall hanging, K. Baka considers family relations, using fish as an emotive allegory. He describes the work as "essentially about the wonder of a woman's protectiveness and love, and her natural endowment of resilience." Entitled (the Fish and the Fry), Baka calls upon the natural gifts of the fish - its ability to handle intense pressure and evade danger - drawing a successful parallel to maternity in the terrestrial world. The artist's mercurial wit is evidenced by a superbly rendered combination of yellow, red, and black. The wall hanging features five tabs at the top for a tapestry rod (not included).
Due to the nature of batik, colors will vary slightly, making each piece an original work of art.
