In such times, she turns to her Chi, her personal god, for comfort.

NWUNYE | Wife, 2019 Acrylic and ink on paper 23.4h x 16.5w inches . Part of the NWA AGBO: Entering Adolescence series previously on view at @JonathanFerraraGallery in #NewOrleans#Louisiana . The genderisation of division of labour across many societies, including that of the Igbos, has given men edge over women in the socio-political structure of said societies. This is reinforced by the image of womanhood which undergoes series of changes from Nwata (childhood) to Nwa Agbo (maidenhood) to Nwunye (wifehood) and Nne (motherhood). This image of womanhood influences and determines the responsibilities that are ascribed to females in traditional Igbo society. As such, right from birth, girls are perceived in the light of their roles as prospective wives and mothers, and hence from infancy, the socialization of girls is tailored towards equipping them with qualities that will enable them fulfill their expected future roles as wives and mothers. . #REWA#artbyREWA#jonathanferraragallery#artsdistrictneworleans#downtownneworleans

With my art, I aim to glorify women in our numerous forms; as goddesses, as symbolic vestiges of Nigerian heritage, as inexorable forces within society. I am incredibly inspired by the sheer determination and temerity of my muse @asisat_oshoala. She’s a go-getter extraordinaire and I’ve recently added her to my cache of (s)heroes. At age 11 she founded an all-female football team for her school, by age 19 she scored the seven goals that lead Nigeria to the finals of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. Oh, did I mention – she’s only 24! She has demonstrated immense strength in the face of adversity – Asisat shows me that success is indeed MINE TO CLAIM!!! @nikefootball@nikewomen#JustDoIt#ad

IGBA NWKU NWANYI: Bride’s Wine-carrying Ceremony | Part of the INU NWUNYE: Bride Price series This ceremony concludes the marital rites that began with a betrothal. Usually, the bride is dressed in the traditional Igbo marital attire which include a red coral bead necklace and a large head adornment known as ‘Ichafu’. Alongside her troupe of maidens, she goes within the gathered crowd to seek out her groom, palm wine in hand. Once she finds her betrothed, she offers him the palm wine whilst kneeling. If he takes a sip, it signifies to the crowd that he is her husband, acceptance means they are officially man and wife. .

Part of the NWA AGBO: Entering Adolescence series currently on view at @JonathanFerraraGallery in #NewOrleans#Louisiana - last few days to catch the exhibition!! . Rites of passage in Igboland are generally centred on periods of transition from one state to another, namely birth, puberty, marriage and death. NWA AGBO – the coming of age where young women who occupy the 18 – 24 age subsets are primed for the rites traditional marriage. NWA AGBO marks the transition from childhood to adulthood, from a relatively unproductive life to productive one and from dependency to independency. Due to its importance and impact on community development, it is an occasion of considerable ritual. It is primarily to welcome or introduce the new adult into the adult world with its rights, privileges and duties. A young maiden is then recognized as an adult and fit for marriage only after a successful puberty rite. . #REWA#artbyREWA#jonathanferraragallery#artsdistrictneworleans#usa
