Details

The millenary customs of the Kantanka family from the Ashanti region (Ghana) inspire K. Baka. According to custom, during the puberty rites of girls, the chief priest picks out a comb from a ceremonial pot. If the comb features heads, it means the gods have spoken to the girl. "The number of heads on the comb is supposed to be the number of children the girl will have," says the artist as he crafts the wall hanging with traditional batik techniques.

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.
