Starring Dolph Lundgren, Bridge of Dragons was a pulpy action/romance from the late 90s. The film's international success is evident in this hand-painted advertisement from Ghana. Frequently unable to import official posters, theaters in Ghana hired enterprising artists to create and embellish designs to promote the films. In this case, "Wasco Art Services" captured the spirit of the film in their own painterly style.

The works, true to their folk style, are hand-lettered in the local vernacular, adding to the character of the works. This painting has exciting perspective emphasizing the excitement of the exotic martial arts the artists endeavored to communicate to their unfamiliar audience. Over time, these singular pieces of movie history have become sought after by collectors the world over.

“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.”
