Obatala is the second son of Olodumare (Yoruba Orisha) and was authorized by her to create land upon the water beneath the sky. To his efforts, the first Yoruba city, Ife, was founded. Obatala is Olodumare's representative on Earth and the shaper of human and animals especially associated with the colours white and grey. in my design I have depicted many of his symbols, the chicken, the calabash, the creation of the human form and the diversity of human beings.
