Art, Honour, and Ridicule: Asafo Flags from Southern Ghana
TORONTO, CANADA • Royal Ontario Museum • 3 September 2016 - 3 March 2017
|The ROM’s new exhibition, Art, Honour, and Ridicule: Asafo Flags from Southern Ghana takes a historical and contemporary look at Asafo flags. These flags are the insignia created for the numerous military Asafo companies of the Fante states along the coast of Southern Ghana. Historically, Asafo companies were in charge of the safety and protection of the local community as well as warfare. Today they act as the vibrant core of local communities. Their flags depict narratives of pride, wisdom, and defiant messages to enemies and are sacred objects depicting the spirit and history of a company.|
