Oluwayemisi Adeniran titles this piece Idimagodo in Yoruba, reflecting the notion that African kings often addressed their subjects while wearing masks in order to disguise their state of physical health. In this cotton batik wall hanging, the mask of the king can be seen in white against purple and yellow hues, achieved by applying a wax resist to the cotton fabric before submerging it in vats of dye.
