Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adeniran explores themes of marriage, painting this composition to depict a Yoruba couple. Says the artist, "This process involves the grooms parents getting a spiritual counsel from the priest on whom to marry. After the choice of the bride has been made, some rites are performed for the marriage ceremony." She paints in the expressionist style to capture the couple with vibrant hues. The image is detailed with intricate ink drawing that lays over the composition like a web. This painting makes a stunning and thought-provoking presence in any home.

This is a breathtaking piece of artwork from Ghana. We have framed it under non-glare glass with a woodsy, inlaid-looking frame and it has a place of honor in our great room. Colors are vivid and true and the attention to detail is extraordinary. The eye is drawn to the beauty and mesmerizing content of the work. Cannot thank the artist enough for adding to our collection of African art. 5 stars.
