Ekwensu (Dance of the Summoner IV)

by Odera Igbokwe

Ekwensu, god of chaos and change
We blame you for trickery and evil
But you are the companion at the crossroads
You test our will and
Shatter the mask that clouds our vision

Ekwensu (Dance of the Summoner IV)

Acrylic & mixed media on board.

5 x 7 (fit to 8×10 matte)


This is a portrait inspired by Ekwensu, the Nigerian (igbo) deity of chaos, change, and negotiations. They are part of my patreon, Melanin Mythologies, where I explore fantasy/scifi that centers the African Diaspora, intersectionality, and QPOC. Feel free to become my patron at for exclusive images and rewards.
The series Dance of the Summoner, started with redesigning classic RPG archetypes (Knight, Mage, Archer, etc) which lead to envisioning the spirits and deities (or Final Fantasy-esque Summons/Espers/Eidolons) of this world.
