This is an older piece that I reworked.  I added the "Hope" section.  The grey-blue behind the word, Hope, is painted fiber paste.  Then I took close-up pictures of the painting and Photoshopped a background and the word.

The name of the piece is "Adinkra Hope," because there are Adinkra symbols in the background of the piece.  According to Wikipedia, the symbols are from Ghana and "have a decorative function but also represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages conveying traditional wisdom, aspects of life, or the environment. There are many symbols with distinct meanings, often linked with proverbs." 

In the pictures below, I added the definitions for the meanings for the symbols I included.

The piece is 16" x 20."

The frame is included in the price.  It measures 28.5" x 24.5" on the outside edge. The black edge that surrounds the frame is 2.75." The white mat is 1.5," and the black mat is .5."
