This sassy young Yoruba woman is assembling her elaborate glass beads in preparation for a special festival. She arches her back in excitement, a precursor to the traditional dance she will confidently execute at dusk with the other women of the tribe. This piece is hand-sculpted from clay and draped in authentic African fabric and different types of glass and trade beads.
