Batik cotton wall hanging, 'Purple Oju Orisha' (Ghana)

Depicting the mediator between humanity and the gods, this cotton wall hanging is created by Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adedunmola. In purple hues, a face is depicted in a cubist style. This wall hanging is decorated using the batik method, where a wax resist is hand-painted onto the fabric before being dyed with different colors. It is named Oju Orisha, meaning "eye of the gods" in Yoruba.
