Ghana Movie Poster by NOA LIVING

Ghana Movie Poster

NOA LIVING

In the early 1980s aspiring entrepreneurs in Ghana, West Africa created “mobile cinemas.” The curators of these traveling movie theaters would journey from village to village with a television, VCR and a gasoline powered generator showing various movies from Hollywood films. As a promotional effort local artists were commissioned to paint movie posters in order to entice the local community to attend the showings. The media typically consisted of bright and bold oil paints on recycled textile “flour sacks.” The artists were given creative freedom to illustrate the movies as desired. This art movement lasted until the mid 1990s when these commissioned masterpieces were finally replaced by printed collateral.

Ancestor Bird Sculpture by NOA LIVING

Ancestor Bird Sculpture

NOA LIVING

In the culture of the Senufo people of Africa, there is a society of initiated men known as Poro. Poro functions as a system of governmental and economic control, preparing the young men for their roles as adults and serving as a channel for the worship of ancestors and of Ancient Mother, one of the two principal Senufo deities. The bird figures are among the many art forms associated with the society and are kept in the sacred grove of Poro where they stand guard protecting the members. During initiations and funeral rituals the birds are carried in processions and are sometimes worn on the head in dramatic displays of strength. Senufo bird figures refer to the physical and intellectual aspects of life. The unique carved elements stand to represent fertility and reproductions, intellectual power, wisdom, authority, and the wealth of knowledge embodied by the Poro. The sculpture celebrates the authority and leadership of Poro elders who are considered the metaphorical mothers of junior Poro initiates. The rarity of these sculptures suggests that by the twentieth century few associations in the northern Cote d’Ivoire invested in the master artisans who created these pieces. Poro and its art forms continue to play roles in Senufo society, although the bird figures have become rare.

Dogon Statue | Figure of a Man

“Dogon country is crowded too enchantingly with sanctuaries, ritual objects, sacred places of all kinds, the minds of the men who live there crossed by too tight a network of myths and beliefs. Their life tied too continually to a fabric of rites for a notice such as this come to provide an overview, much less a complete account.” (Leiris, 1933)
