Swinging from trees or mounted to buildings, barbershop signs are fascinating examples of pop and folk art in 20th century Africa. Each sign was painted to take on the unique personality of the shop owner, expressing hair style options and the popular icons they emulate. This example is a triptych that references contemporary American culture of the time. In the lower left corner a razor boxes against the unruly hair of its subject, adding a comedic touch to entice passersby. Signed by the artist, Professor Justice, this sign promises customers the "Best of the Best."

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
