Medium of the Art: This piece was particularly interesting to see in person because it showed the culture of a society so well. It is "Chinese" Style Fancy Dress and is from a small Ghanaian coastal town. It is referred to as "Chinese", but was influenced by Brazilian carnival styles. The culture of this coastal town is very clearly shown by this amazing costume and the influences from around the world can be seen in it. The vibrant colors and different textures and patterns can only truly be appreciated by seeing this work in person. This work was able to connect me to a people and a culture that is halfway across the world from where I was standing. It was not only beautiful but it was also meaningful.
