Nkyinkyim: The Ancestor Project that uses Sculpture

Nkyinkyim installation is an evolving art installation which is attempting to use sculptures to tell the story of African heritage. The project is spearheaded by Kwame Akoto-Bamfo and has been running for 6 years using sculpture as a medium. The work consists of over 1,300 pieces of sculpture that depict the capture of Africans taken to the Americas and the Caribbean from Cape Coast and Elmina, Ghana.
