Details

The Oduro (or brown) mask represents the powerful male king, a figure who embodies many of the ideal traits for a ruler deemed necessary by the traditional society of Ghana. Traditionally, the shape of rings or links, such as those in Oduro’s right ear, are associated with spirituality, linking the spirit with the physical. King Oduro was known for his refined ability to heal both physical and spiritual sickness. Oduro’s large eyes seem to recall his visionary stature, which, in combination with his parted lips, suggests a willingness to speak on behalf of his ideals. K. Baka injects fiery life into this cultural figure through warm yellow and red tones. A lovely batik on cotton, this piece is rich in cultural significance and aesthethic appeal.

The piece is created from cotton cloth and vegetative dyes and may be cared for by washing in cool water, using mild soaps or detergents.

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.

"Pretty but too short"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The picture is deceptive. The scarf is as wide as my hand and goes around my neck to my chest. I cant loop it ...its so short. Very disappointing. Art work is pretty but it would make a better hot pad or placemate.
