“The BLACK CAMEO™ created by artist Coreen Simpson, has quickly become "The Seal of a New Order."
The celebrated design is the first American Cameo, of the Contemporary Woman of Color, created in the classic relief-traditional style.
This 1990 piece takes its place in History beside the Blackamoor "Cameo Habille," made in England in 1850, in celebration of Black womanhood.
The BLACK CAMEO™ is a collector's treasure and a required piece for today's Woman of the World.”
