Introducing "King of the White Cloth: Obatala," an original, inspiring painting that embodies the wisdom, patience, and craftsmanship of Obatala, a revered deity in Yoruba mythology.

This striking acrylic painting, measuring 84.1cm x 59.4cm, unfolds the intriguing story of Obatala, often portrayed as the King of the White Cloth. He is the divine craftsman, the creator of humanity, who shaped the first humans from clay with his own hands.

Depicted with his symbolic silver cane, the painting masterfully illustrates Obatala's status as the upholder of moral integrity and ethical conduct. Each brushstroke on the smooth sanded 23mm deep paulownia wood panel subtly portrays his authority and wisdom.

Obatala's association with individuals with physical or mental disabilities is also woven into this captivating painting. It reflects the tale of when he sipped palm wine while crafting human beings, thereby giving birth to the first humans with unique physical or mental attributes.

Coated with a protective layer of gloss varnish, the painting possesses a luminescent quality that emphasizes the purity and divinity associated with Obatala. The gloss finish also serves as a safeguard against fading, preserving the vivid colors and intricate details for years to come.

The painting comes signed and with a Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring that this piece of Obatala's story is uniquely yours. As a special bonus, your purchase also includes three mini prints of the original Obatala painting. These are perfect for adorning additional spaces with the story of Obatala, or for sharing this remarkable narrative with loved ones.
