By Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adedunmola Adeniran, this cotton wall hanging tells the story of Queen Adeola, who fell in love with a stranger from a faraway land. Against a red background, Queen Adeola is depicted along with two other faces. This wall hanging is decorated using the batik method, where a wax resist is hand-painted onto the fabric before being dyed with different colors. It is named Olori, meaning "queen" in Yoruba.

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.
