  • Product Description
 

Sirigu''s extraordinary traditional architecture, mural decorations and pottery, are genuinely some of the most preserved artistic forms of the Upper East Region of Ghana. The cultural significance and symbolism of these magnificent art forms, however, are not fully appreciated by many admirers. Also, very little is known about the materials, tools and techniques that go into the creation of these spectacular works. The central focus of this work is to provide answers to address the above mentioned deficiencies. This book therefore richly captures the various raw materials, tools and techniques used in the construction of the indigenous architectural edifices, pottery and murals works in the Sirigu society. It also details the cultural and philosophical symbolism of the art forms to the people of Sirigu. The book touches further on the current structures put in place for tourists visiting Sirigu, as well as the tourism potentials of the community, and how it could be tapped. This book will be a valuable resource material for Researchers, Students, Artists, Art lovers, Architects, Interior decorators and tourists.
