The word “Surulere” is yoruba for “patience is profitable. There is a drapery from the Yoruba region in West Africa (parts of Nigeria and Benin) currently at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond. The craftsperson likely was not literate, and inverted the “L” on the piece.

The painting follows that result and that spirit.
