West Africa has a rich tradition of masks, embodied in a wall hanging by K. Baka. Each has its meaning – protection, strength, peace, joy and love, for example. This beautiful batik depicts a mask with an adinkra symbol on the forehead. Mmsusuyidee means "that which removes bad luck" in the Twi language and is a symbol of good fortune and sanctity.

I purchased Elephant Child. Not only is it more beautiful in person, it also creates a great energy in the room. It is officially the coolest thing on my wall, and I have lots of cool things on my walls. I highly recommend this exquisite tapestry to anyone who loves elephants like I do.
