Impressed with the beliefs and traditions of the Yoruba people, Salihu Ibrahim replicates Shango staffs. Shango is the Lord of Thunder, and the Yoruba believe he will send a bolt of lightning to strike a person if he or she was not truthful when settling an important matter. Ibrahim carves each sculpted staff from sese wood, adorning the male figure with orange glass beads. Both figures wear an axe of justice for a headdress.
