Past, Present and Future

Arrived back safely after a whirlwind of an adventure full of scary, humorous, novel, dangerous and friendly moments. My journey encompassed Abuja, Owerri where most of the academic research on Mbari houses/shrines was carried out, Umuahia, Enugu on the way to Nsukka and finally Lagos where l did not see the Hyena Men, but experienced the rather intriguing 'taxi service' which is more a lesson on how to fix cars and get out of difficulties!!!

I will start this series of six diaries and images chronologically, although in the final analysis the context of being in and part of the whole culture was as much part of the research for making artwork as the academic focus on Mbari houses and shrines themselves.
