Batik wall hanging, 'Aklowa by Night' (Ghana)

The moon's silver glow illuminates the village of Aburi, where K. Baka was born. Renowned for its spectacular view of Accra, this aklowa (meaning "village" in the Ga language) is surrounded by exotic and medicinal plants. Baka uses dyes and pigments extracted from plants to obtain the fascinating colors that enliven this composition.
