I used this staff becasue it would have been carried by high ranking official within tribal groups who would have also been the one wearing the Kente cloth.
The fertility doll is another supporting example of the spiritual beliefs within Ghana much like the cloth. Each of the colors have a meaning and spiritual significance like this fertility doll.
This is just another example of how large these cloths can get and the detailed work and thought that was placed into wrappers.
