Court chamber doors (2004)
Copper with brass nails / 3200 x 1000 mm
Commissioned as part of the construction of the court building
The court doors' patterns are inspired by Ghanaian kente cloth that was originally worn only in times of extreme importance, its use later becoming more widespread. Through its red sheen the door reflects the light of the rule of law in the highest court in the land.
