Ehi, in the Edo language of West Africa, represents a person's true nature or self.
The art piece represents the Ehi, at its fullest potential.
The head, reminiscent of the style of classical Benin bronze figurines, represents the Ehi's physical incarnation.
The fire on the calm-faced head represents a strong divine connection.
The dark orb represents the subconscious aspects of a person's Ehi.
We see a hand gently cradling the orb... this represents a person's need to connect with the Ehi in order to fulfill its purpose. It also represents self-love.
And the hands at the bottom, acting as a foot, represents the balance that grounds the Ehi.
The Ehi is never born and it never dies.
The piece was originally done using a ballpoint pen on brown paper.
