Ghanaian artist Cecilia Adedunmola Adeniran creates this unique wall hanging. In a variety of colors, a mother with a pair of twins is depicted on the cotton cloth. This wall hanging is decorated using the batik method, where a wax resist is hand-painted onto the fabric before being dyed with different colors. Says the artist, 'Giving birth to twins is considered scared among the Yoruba people. It is believed that anyone who is blessed with twins is said to be a blessed person and should receive them with joy and happiness. There is a belief that twins drive away evil from the house.'
