About the Art

2014. Watercolour and Ink on Paper
Paper Size: 14 x 20 inches

The word “ibeji” means “twins” in Yoruba. In this painting, we see a pair of non-identical twins sharing one body. They are clothed in an adiré print called “circle of life”. The twins’ heads are adorned with different flowers – some British flowers that represent Nigeria’s colonial background, and others like the calla lily, which is a local Nigerian flower. The twins have precious coral beads around their one neck. In Yorubaland, coral beads are usually used for ceremonial events. Rather than creating an adiré patterned background, Modé depicted guns in an adiré-like fashion.
