Footnotes

  • Chief Oloruntoba is not only an artist, but also a herbal specialist and traditional healer. His artwork plays a major role in his healing practice since, he says, the paintings have the power to heal a range of ailments. According to Oloruntoba, the vegetable dyes used in his paintings are not simply colours; rather they are medicines made from traditional roots and herbs that give the paintings therapeutic powers.
