Original Painting - 42 x 59.4 cm

Anansi the Spider had a burning desire, a wish to be the keeper of all the world's wisdom.
So, he went to Nyame, the Sky Father, who owned all the wisdom in the world, and asked him to gather this wisdom together in one place so he could keep it.

Nyame agreed to this and put all the world's wisdom into a pot, which he gave to Anansi.
Anansi began to climb the tallest tree in the forest, so he could hide the pot where no one could find it. But the large pot hindered Anansi. His son advised him to tie the pot on his back, which worked.

This upset Anansi. He realized that the wisdom his son had shown was not in the pot. Anansi was so frustrated by this, that he accidentally let go of the pot, and it fell to the ground and shattered, scattering wisdom all across the world.
As a result, wisdom ended up being accessible to all, rather than being hoarded by one person.
