Poised on one foot, a graceful dancer whirls to a dance with the Damba tribe of northern Ghana. Dressed in a single cloth of batik, he wears beads and feathers on ankles and arms, and holds a traditional tool covered in kente cloth. Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah creates the exquisite scene in silhouette.
Arrives with a ceiba wood frame.
