Efemena

Efemena

Artist
Efemena Ogboru
Description
Efemena means my wealth in Urhobo and Efe means wealth. The lions in this piece are used to symbolize power and authority. The instrument on the left is called a shekere, while the instrument on the right is called a talking drum. These instruments originated from West Africa and are popularly used in my home country, Nigeria. The cloth he is wearing is a representation of the Isi Agu (lion’s head) cloth which are mostly worn by Igbo people from the south eastern part of Nigeria.
