Details

Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adeniran reflects on an extinct marriage ritual. Often practiced by many Yoruba people in Nigeria, this cultural tradition is now found only in remote villages. Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adeniran captures the procession in this painting, featuring the bride wearing a beaded necklace with an exaggerated posture, accompanied by her bridesmaid. In the background are several onlookers. The artist paints this impressive composition in the expressionist style, drawing African motifs with black ink that lays over the canvas like a dark web.

"Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a breathtaking piece of artwork from Ghana. We have framed it under non-glare glass with a woodsy, inlaid-looking frame and it has a place of honor in our great room. Colors are vivid and true and the attention to detail is extraordinary. The eye is drawn to the beauty and mesmerizing content of the work. Cannot thank the artist enough for adding to our collection of African art. 5 stars.
