This is an Illustration featured in my thesis book 'The Bush'.


This illustration depicts the popular West-African Orisha Diety Ala. Ala is the female Alusi of the earth, morality, fertility, and creativity in Odinani. In Odinani, Ala rules over the underworld and holds the deceased ancestors in her womb. Her name literally translates to "ground" in the Igbo language, denoting her powers over the earth and her status as the ground itself. She is associated with creation, femeninity, and death.
