"To Be A Man"

Oil paint on plywood Barber's sign from Ghana. I love the text at the top of this painting "To Be A Man".

Most of the barber shops in Ghana can be found anywhere: under a tree, on a public road, in a market stall. A barber is basically a signboard, a stool for the customer and a few tools!
The size of this signboard is 25" x 18".
