Soul Comb III - Pride & Power (Ready to Hang)
The black fist Afro comb is an evocative symbol of the second half of the twentieth century. Coming into production at some point in the 1970s, the comb’s marriage of object and iconography was a perfect one. With its reference to the Black Power movement, and its historical links to the re-emergence of the popularity of the wider-toothed hair pick in the USA to serve the Afro hairstyle, the pick comb has become more than simply representative of an era and a political affiliation, it also symbolizes Black pride and identity. This powerful contemporary canvas image is presented within a sleek floating black frame ready to hang.
