Dressed in a single cloth of batik, he wears beads and feathers on ankles and arms, and holds a traditional tool covered in kente cloth. Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah creates the exquisite scene in silhouette. "First and foremost, I assemble my working tools, after which I sketch images on the calico cloth," Yeboah explains.
