Three Ghanaian women make their way to the market carrying heavy loads on their heads to sell. They never forget their motherly duties and bring their children with them--two have their babies strapped to their back, and the third one holds her child's hand. In yellow, dark brown, black, red, blue, purple, orange, and green, this threadwork composition is by Ernestina Oppong Asante.
