About the print:

The Kru Money print features items specific to designer Denisio Truitt's West African heritage. The flower is Liberia's national flower, the pepper flower. The pepper plant and its consumption for Liberians is more than just a condiment with which to season food, it is an integral part of the culture. When a pot of food is "sweet" (or delicious), it is incredibly spicy. Liberians take a great amount of pleasure in the challenge to eat dishes that have been spiced with some of the hottest peppers in the world. The design also includes Kru Money, a mysterious sacred object belonging to the Kru people, Denisio's mother's tribe. The purpose and use of these hand cast bronze rings, some of which are centuries old, is unknown. They are extremely rare, occasionally found in the forests of Liberia.
