Children of the Harvest

by Odera Igbokwe

Children of the Harvest

You close your eyes before winter’s slumber

You are the offering to your ancestors

You are the sustenance to your progeny

Children of the Harvest (Yam & Kola Nut)

Acrylic on paper/board.

5 x 7 (fit to 8×10 matte)


This is a portrait inspired by the cultural and ritual aspects of yams and Kola nut in Nigerian culture. They are part of my patreon, Melanin Mythologies, where I explore fantasy/scifi that centers the African Diaspora, intersectionality, and QPOC. Feel free to become my patron at www.patreon.com/Odera for exclusive images and rewards.
