This work represents Moremi Ajosoro, a Yoruba Queen who lived in the XIIth century. She is known as a warrior Queen. According to the legend, she saved her people from the invaders by sacrificing her only child. She is usually represented in a very different way. I have decided to dress her up with contemporary clothes. The sword she holds embodies her fight. It can also be seen as a cemetery cross, symbolizing the death of her son.
