"I created this piece to illustrate the problems women face day in and day out," says Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah. He portrays "an African woman who has to sell her wares or participate in the farm work, carrying her baby on her back, thus having a great burden. She returns home again to tackle the house chores, serving her family all the day long." Batik cloth in traditional African colors adorns her silhouette, isolating her figure on the tranquil background.

The artist describes his process, “First and foremost, I assemble my working tools, after which I sketch images on the calico cloth. With the sketches done, I sprinkle red and green oil paints on the calico cloth to give it a simple colorful background. I then cut out particular places I intend to replace with kente or batik, which are later glued together. Afterwards, I dry and frame my collage work.”

Wrapped about stiff board, the painting arrives framed in tweneboa wood.

I just received The Lost Fishermen and I love it. This artwork arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the photo online. It is beautiful up close and from a distance, and draws lots of attention from visitors. Definitely worth the purchase.

Love the artwork Good Akan Mother. It arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the picture online. I also like that it is signed by the artist. I will definitely be investing in a glass frame to protect this beautiful work!
