The Ori, The Connector

by Odera Igbokwe

The Ori, The Connector
Celestial bodies pulse and release their aches
In their alignment they remember the earliest lullaby
The incantations that crackle amongst dreamscapes

The painting is inspired by the metaphysical concept of the Ori, which refers to one’s head, spiritual crown, consciousness, soul, personal Orisha, or the flicker of our ancestral guardian that helps plot out our destiny. They are part of my patreon, where I explore Afrofuturism, Mythology, and Fantasy that centers the African Diaspora, intersectionality, and QPOC.
