"The Soul of the Nation Resided in the Stool" titled loaned and starting point of art piece influenced by Yaa Asantewaa appointed queen mother of Ejisu of the Ashanti Empire now modern day Ghana. In 1900 she led the Ashanti rebellion known as the War of the Golden Stool against British colonialism.
She promoted women emancipation as well as gender equality. This image is sliced with my take on The Statue of Liberty. Gifted to USA by France, designed by Frederic Augusta Bartholdi. Chains lie at the feet of the statue to represent the emancipation of enslaved people. Unfortunately these chains are hard to see and can only be viewed from a certain point.
