African art is known for its vibrant colours, intricate patterns and rich history. But as far as the use of gold in African art, the colour gold has only been used in a very limited way. There are a few pieces of artwork that use gold in an African context.
But the one most commonly associated with Africa is the Aso-Ebi, an outfit that is native to West Africa. The outfit has long been revered in the region for its ability to bring wealth and prosperity. The gold coloured Aso-Ebi style has been used as a symbol of wealth, power and good luck.
There is no doubt that the traditional gold and black Aso-Ebi design is one of the most sought after fish designs, but it’s the gold coloured Aso-Ebi that has really taken off.
