Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Plaster on Canvas.

I am often fascinated by the heard-gears adorning the heads of female party goers among the "Yorubas". It is a very essential part of the dress culture of this tribal group and they often go far lengths to make them as unique as possible. In this rendition, i have stylized them by exaggerating the scarf and extending the necks of the women to emphasize their elegance
