Details

Ghanaian artisan Frank Odei Amoani celebrates Fante artistry with the design of this comb as wall decor. He carves the sese wood comb sculpture by hand featuring the face and nude upper torso of a woman. Combs have long been regarded as symbols of status, group affiliation and religious beliefs to African societies past and present. In Ghana's Fante communities, women might have a number of combs in their collections, received from husbands or admirers as well as family. They used to be part of their cosmetic kits and were kept as heirlooms, as mothers passed combs on to their daughters.
