Artist Comment/Statement: 

The unusual print fabric in this wall hanging is from Africa.  I loved the vibrant colors in this fabric and wanted to add even more color. 

The name "Ibo" comes from the people of Iboland, which is a region of Africa in the southeastern corner of present-day Nigeria, which is on the western coast of Africa, near the equator.  The house walls of the Ibo's are painted in wonderful, vibrant bright color patterns.  If they have such colorful houses, I wondered if the Ibo people have beautiful colorful dreams.
