About The Artwork

Title: Wura (means Gold amongst the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria.) portrait of my very good friend, Precious Medium: Acrylic on textured canvas Size: 36 by 48 inches Year: 2020 . The Yoruba tribe is one out of the three (3) major tribes in Nigeria with richness in culture and heritage. Although the use of heavy beads is mostly seen amongst the Yorubas and the Igbos or the Easterners as we often time refer to them. But this particular bead is mostly identified with the People of Benin. Benin is strongly affiliated to the Yorubas but they ain’t yoruba. . The body art in this piece is a fraction of the ‘sacred art’ of the ‘Ori’ in yoruba which means ‘head’. It is often time referred to as one’s spiritual intuition and destiny. Body art is sacred amongst the Yorubas, Nigeria and Africa as a whole. It is the reflective spark of African consciousness embedded into the human essence.
