Details

Like two patient guardians, these twins stand with eyes fixed forward in a curious and watchful manner. Ghanaian artisan Christian Kwesi Tawiah adorns these hand carved wood figures with recycled glass beads and raffia skirts, along with a dusting of powder that gives them the appearance of ancient artifacts. He describes them as Ibeji, the Nigerian word for identical twins.
