"This is an imaginative composition that shows how close some of our communities are. This batik composition shows the unity of people coming together after war," Samuel Ashong explains. He is referring to refugees who have been displaced from their villages in times of war, and built their homes close to each other in new locations for protection. Ashong details people coming together forming a new community, the close-knit rooftops a symbol of their hope for peace and safety. Includes a card paper mat board.

"Beautiful Batik"

The art is beautiful and will be a great addition to our home. The packaging did protect the batik, but the matting is creased on one entire short end.

"treasure from Africa"

I made one African wall in my hallway. I have been to Africa many times, but I could not return with anything big...I love this picture of the women at the market in West Africa. It has modern and primitive elements as I see it, and it goes well with my other artifacts.
