African Art

African art varies greatly, from wooden hand carved figures to paintings to handmade fabrics like Kente Cloth and Batik cloth art.  The different countries of Africa each share similar artistic heritages and you will find that art from different areas of Africa share similar styles and qualities, although specific cultures place their own signatures on their arts. In Ghana, you will find that Kente Cloth is the signature art of the country.  However you will find other types of art such as the “Dondo” drum, which is used for community events and the more modern wax print cloth which is adorned by both women and men alike.
