Product Description

Wooden wall plaques that depict village scenes are normally found in the homes of Ghana families; especially those that have moved to the city or abroad to pursue careers other than the ones offered in their native villages or to further their education. The plaques are heartwarming reminders of home. People in Ghana are very proud of their village life. A favored past time is the gatherings that occur after a days’ labor. The women would converse about their days’ activities and the men about their triumphs. Opinions concerning tribal matters were shared and discussed from simple issues to the complex. Flirting between prospective couples and tender glances between longtime mates are observed. At any given moment drumming might fill the air and dancing would ensue. A good time was had by all. Most important was the camaraderie, kinship and the secure sense of belonging that the togetherness fostered. Our 39 inch long x 17 ½ inch tall plaque has been crafted from one piece of a beautiful, very heavy, native hardwood that is 1 inch thick! Villagers are portrayed sitting, standing, drumming, talking, on a seat, under trees, in a group. The raised bas relief detailing is very clear and complements the wood grain. The carver paid excellent attention to the villagers’ hair and tribal garb. The background detailing has large well formed leaves and trees and even bits of scattered flowers. The wide, wood cut border edging, provides a pronounce framing effect and is decorated with deep tribal etchings.
