Starring Donnie Yen, "The Bruce Lee of the 90s," "Crystal Hunt" was a martial arts film from Hong Kong made in 1991. Frequently, theaters in Ghana were unable to import official posters. Enterprising artists created advertisements in their own style. The result are singular works of art. In this case "Wasco Art Services" captured the spirit of the film in their own painterly style. The misspellings and hand-painted lettering are integral to the genre and shed light on the cross-cultural 'mis'interpretations common to this now well-collected folk art form.
