A hand made painted signboard with two men, a woman and the words "Art by Nana Elvis" painted on the bottom. Ghanaians are very good in making art out of the ordinary and the colorful signs you see everywhere around Kumasi are case in point. Advertising everything from barbershops and beauty salons to chophouses and medicine men, the signs are both functional and decorative.
