A unisex t-shirt designed in Tema, Ghana, celebrating the mythology of football.
Ebenezer Agyeman is a self-taught designer, illustrator and musician in Tema, Ghana. He loves pixel art, line art and woodcut styles. He also plays bass guitar, sings and writes hymns, and plays - though he insists he's bad at - football, a national obsession in Ghana. (em-ar-ay-dot)

Ebenezer's 32 Nations Project design showcases his obsession with line art, and represents a mythical game in the history of Ghanian soccer culture: Ghana 1 - India 100. A legend passed down for generations says that on an unknown date and in an unknown location, a team from India scored 100 goals against a team from Ghana, using mystical forces to transform the ball into raging beasts, fire, and other forms. Ghana scored a single goal on a penalty kick, which by the obscure rules of the match made Ghana the winner. The penalty taker is said to have disappeared shortly after the match. Today the story is told with sensitivity, because in subculture, India can be generic for the source of all magical power.
