THE SIGNIFICANCE OF ART IN THE ACTIVITIES OF THE WULOMO.

ABSTRACT 

The study, explored art form and art works associated with the position of the Wulomo in Teshie in Ghana. The main objective of this research was to study the Wulomoi of Teshie, with the view to identify the Art forms that are associated with their position and examined the importance and meaning of the Art forms used by the Wulomoi. It adopted a qualitative inquiry based on the narrative method. Data was collected through observation, and unstructured interviews. Purposive sampling was used to obtain important information due to the small size of the population. The sample for the study were 5 Wulomoi at Teshie and the main findings of the study indicated that Art plays a significant role in the priestly rule of the Wulomoi of Teshie in that the position of a Wulomo is purely surrounded with Art especially the use of colour and its symbolism. It became evident in the study that most of the Art forms used by the Wulomoi communicate their symbolic identity. In order to preserve the original identity from the ongoing changes affecting the position of the Wulomoi, efforts should be made to publish more literature about the Wulomo from different aspects of their lives.
