Obatala (Dance of the Summoner II)

by Odera Igbokwe

“Obatala the grandfather of peace and creation,  

fans his breath and wisdom into humankind

/Obatalá obá layé ela iwo alara aché/

Obatala (Dance of the Summoner II)

Acrylic on board.

8 x 10  (12 x 15 with frame)


This portrait is part of my fantasy RPG world exploration.

I’ve been reimagining classic RPG archetypes (Knight, Mage, Archer, etc), which has lead to envisioning the Summons (or Final Fantasy-esque Espers/Eidolons/Aeons) of this world.

Next in the series we have a portrait inspired by Obatala, the Nigerian (Yoruba) Orisha of Peace, Creation, and the universe’s collective consciousness.

Super excited to continue exploring the pantheon of nigerian-diasporic mythologies and how they can be transformed and alchemized into my own personal grimoire~!
