1996 Mural in Nigeria

The proprietor of Ewe Nla (Yoruba language for "Big Leaf") and me in 1996. I was working on an environmental sanitation research project, and staying with Mike and Mary Warren in the town of Ara, Oyo State, Nigeria. I painted this mural (this is just a portion) using charcoal and bits of leftover house paint, as a favor for the Warrens and the town. The woman is a Mami Wata (river goddess).
