My title “The Nobles” is directed to the painted bead [ coral bead ] in my work, it is a documentation of the values of coral beads in Benin kingdom [ Nigeria- Africa ] in the days of my fathers.

Coral beads are made from raw corals which are hard red, pink or white substance built on the sea-bed by small sea creatures to protect their soft bodies.

Coral beads were introduced into the Benin kingdom in about the 15th century, at that time it was used by royalties, noble men/women because it was expensive and a symbol of royalty.

However, development and civilization has made coral’s to be used by everyone who can afford it. Despire civilization, coral beads is still invaluable in quality and a symbol of royalty, nobility and tradition etc in my society.

My artpiece is a mixed media composition of an African cloth stitched at the right upper side of my canvas and a cute repeated oil painting of motifs/patterns with values of red and blue is expressed to harmonize with the cloth in my painting.

Inspiration for this work of art was tapped from a cloth shop in my neighbourhood in Nigeria- Africa. One morning as I walked through my street I saw two decorative cloth in a shop that called my attention and I told myself- “Wow! I have to express this cloth on my canvas”.

According to the words of a friend- “A meal is sweeter to the mouth than with the eye”. So I made effort to buy the cloths because, it gave me a cultural and symbolic feeling.

This work of art is a composition of various African brown fabrics, a chiaroscuro oil painting of an ear wearing a blue fabric ear-ring and a yarn stain with blue colour is used to stitch the composition, in order to harmonize the ear-ring with the various fabrics.

My inspiration for this art piece was drawn from the feminine quality [ i.e their mode of dressing]. Most women border so much on how to harmonize colours in their dressing eg, using a black hand bag with a black shoe/a blue scarf with a blue skirt etc. My art piece picture a lady trying “to match” her blue African fabric ear-ring with a brown dress.
