This statuette outlines a pregnant woman leading her two little children alongside her, while carrying a curiously tall column of baskets. George Obeng has imbued this work with intelligent sensitivity, amply speaking for the plight of the economically and socially belittled citizens of this sector of the world. The solid ebony wood he employs for the harrowing human narrative is a durable testament to the innate strengths of the African people. Wherever her destination is, this woman carries on with unflagging determination, not to fail herself, her humble trade, and her children - born and expected.
