Lowcountry Gullah Artwork
Gullah art is unique in that it not only represents the culture, but the story of a people. The Gullah culture is rich in African tradition and its art reflects strength and resilience through images that, like an African Giot, or storyteller, depict how life is or was.
The question is often asked why in Gullah art, some of the faces are without features. The art depicts the characters as they were considered as slaves, when they were stripped of their personalities, but not their spirit. The faceless images represent the Gullah people for their perseverance and will to survive, regardless of their individuality.
