El Anatsui __ photo by "Tribal Trappings" blogger at the National Museum of African Art (Smithsonian). Large "cloth" made of metal strips from the necks & tops of liquor bottles. "The rich metallic color brings to mind Ghana's famous goldsmith traditions... its composition of strips gives a nod to the strip-woven cloth of Ghana, called 'kente.'" _ El Anatsui was born in Ghana, but lives & teaches in Nigeria since 1975.
