ROYALTY, UPDATED Ghanian sculptor Jacob Tetteh-Ashong uses his deep knowledge of traditional African woodwork to create figures depicting the beauty of ancient African royalty, Queen Mothers and the dignity of female elders with the air of modern women. His first series, the Beauty of Many Nations, is carved in wood and decorated with earrings, wigs, and brightly painted faces. “Aba,” shown here, means one who is born on Thursday. Based in Accra, Tetteh-Ashong creates these heads in sese wood and oil paints. These one-of-a-kind artworks have a one to two-week lead time. $1,420. thefutureperfect.com/product/objects/aba
