A warm sky accompanies Aunty Ama when she goes for water; she will also ask for a blessing from the lake god. Her house may be equipped with water pipes, yet she's mindful of tradition. She carries her baby on her back and a clay pot on her head. A moving scene of tradition, it is executed with vegetable dyes on pure cotton cloth by K. Baka. Baka calls this piece "Faa Naa Yoo" which comes from the Ga language meaning "woman from the lakeside."
