Drawing and painting have always come naturally to Ghana's Emmanuel Martey Cherkoh. Cherkoh presents this original oil on canvas painting, which depicts a stylized gourd with geometric and tribal motifs in a palette of turquoise and ochre. "It shows a gourd which our mothers in olden days cut out in different shapes to store water, use as a drinking cup, etc. It signifies our mothers in society, and the love they have for their children," says the artist.
