I have been thinking about a slice that would help me celebrate Ghana, as it is the anniversary of her Independence day today, 6th March. I have stated before how I have been looking closely at my environment since I started writing. On my walk about at school this drawing caught my eye.
An exquisite chalk drawing of mother Ghana, drawn by our lower elementary Art teacher yesterday, to celebrate the day. I asked her assistant if I could take a photograph of it and sent a message to ask the teacher if I could share her picture. With her permission, I am sharing this:
This drawing represents many facets of where I am. The culture: flag, colorful fabrics, beads, food and clothes. My interpretation of the woman is mother Ghana, representing its people. I am connecting this to melissaroosh‘s interpretation and comment about theatre in her slice. I have also started to look for ‘magic’ in the Arts.
