Sokari Douglas Camp can create an absolutely harmonious combination of elements from the Kalabari world and Western influences. In this work, the two worlds blend wonderfully. The position of the head and the choice of the half bust bring back to the portrait sculpture of the past, but the artist’s aesthetic identity is immediately recognizable.
