Day # 16, Around the House in 80 Days”

These barbershop signs are originally from Ghana but I didn’t buy it there..Found this old piece at the Noordermarkt in Amsterdam. It’s obviously been cut in half and it has water damage but I had to have it none the less.
The few times I visited Accra I did come across these side of the road signs quite often.
Now I regret not buying them there so much.Meant purely practically as shop signs, these hand painted boards are now considered works of art and can be worth quite a lot.Bought this one for €5,- but I indeed have it up on the wall as an artwork.Also added a picture I took in Accra, showing how these signs are used.
