This portrait depicts a Ghanaian mother carrying water on her head while gracefully balancing her child on her back. The child gazes up at his mother, feeling strongly connected to her as his mother goes about her day.

Seeing children accompany their mothers as they work is a frequent sight in Ghana. Shocking to westerners, the children require very little attention to remain happy throughout the day.

Artist: Eman Saman

Eman is a 23-year-old artist from Aburi, a village near Accra, Ghana, that is best-known for being home to the serene and inspiring Aburi Botanical Gardens. Eman has been painting for the last six years, specializing in works that depict touching portraits of village life with a high level of quality and sensitivity that clearly shows he has truly mastered his art. Each stunning piece he produces is sure to add an elegant touch of grace and sophistication to nearly any collection or decor. Moreover, he also succeeds in drawing out the regal qualities and compassion of his people in such a positive, yet realistic, manner; as aspect where many Western artists cannot compare. His work speaks for itself in saying that painting is not only a profession, but also a passion, which he undertakes with such seriousness, talent, and commitment, that great things can be expected from him for years to come.
