Àkòdì Òrìṣà Artists

Many models would give an arm and a leg to look as fit as these artists at the Àkòdì Òrìṣà, Ile Ife, Nigeria!

Now, look carefully at this picture.

You will see the Àkòdì Òrìṣà artists pounding clay with pestles in a mortar. Do you notice that the mortar is upside-down, as these orisa artists are pounding the clay?

After preparing the clay, they will use it to make sculptural images for our cultural enjoyment.
