Product Description

When there is a visual artistic expression that reflects a specific historical psycho-socio time period of a people that object is considered to be important. This selection is reminiscent of the time when Africa was dominated by European colonists. A sad time when most native tribal African art was considered to be absolute taboo, uncivilized, the work of the devil and banned from further production by the invaders. Despite this assault, the heart of the African artist survived. It is very refreshing to see a Colonial era sculpture that captures the simple essence of true Ashanti tribal life without the stain of colonial influence.

The 6 carved figures represent a typical sampling of villagers on their way to a special tribal gathering. Three ladies dressed in traditional garb each with a babe tied on back and a woven basket balanced on head top will draw your attention first. The ladies physiques are thick, showing long strong arms and postures erect signifying their strength. Their wooden facial expressions show a proud determination to succeed at their task. Make no mistake those baskets are heavy and filled to the brim. Large imposing walking sticks accompany each of the women. Two smaller characters walking behind the lead lady flanking her sides appear to be blowing on horn like instruments. The two women that are bringing up the rear have a young child walking between them.

This group statue is extremely well detailed from top to bottom. Dense smooth polychrome has colorized everything from the large baskets and gourd to each outfit worn. The 3 inch thick base itself has deeply driven etchings creating colorful bas relief geometrical shapes. The entire configuration is solid and weighty.
