Badu in Nigeria
Done in a traditional African woodcut style, featuring Erykah's classic Nigerian style headwrap with a little blackbird of peace:
In Nigeria: the mythical spirit birds are guardians of the peace.
The birds also predict the future.The appearance of the little
black birds that fly around the market women are a happy sign.
They are seen as predictors of the much needed rains to awaken the soil
to provide food.
The border of the print incorporates traditional Nigerian masks, motifs and patterns, mixed in with some classic Badu imagery.
