Not sure what is going on in this 1970s Fante Asafo flag but I love the pink amulet covered outfit of the pointing Supi (the Asafo company officer), particularly against the vivid yellow background. Late work by the prolific and long lived master flagmaker of the Anomabo workshop, Kwamina Amoaku (1895-1985) –  See Forni & Ross, Art, Honor, and Ridicule (2017:61-62) for a discussion of this significant figure and the Anomabo workshop with which he was associated. Dates from circa 1970. In excellent condition.

Measurement: 66 inches x 38 ins, 167 cm x 96 cm.
