The Filigree and Flame print is named for the Rita Dove poem entitled “Testimonial”.

Originally captioned “Bondu Girls, Sierra Leone”, Lisk-Carew Brothers, circa 1905.
About the Ancestor Collection
The Ancestor Collection is Denisio Truitt’s latest work that seeks to recontextualize elements of her West-African heritage thru the vehicle of contemporary fashion. This theme is evident in her earlier Dan Mask and West-African Fetish Series'. Here the artist utilizes early 20th century photographs of indigenous West-African peoples and places them within a modern framework as a means of honoring the bridge between past and present.
