A sweet beverage made from corn, asaana is a local Ghanaian delicacy with plenty of tradition. K. Baka paints this composition in an expressionist style, depicting a smiling woman with a pot of asaana expertly balanced atop her head. She wears a cloth around her breast, with beaded jewelry decorating her arms and neck. In the distance, huts in her village can be seen.
