Power of the Ram
Artist: Alejandro Ontiveros
Size: 34 x 23.5 in. Oil on Canvas
A young West African female is shown in full hunting regalia with the power of the ram.
The Ram is a rather new image for Africans brought over by Europeans. The ram appears as a steadfast symbol of power and strength for many African cultures. These powers are usually attributed to the head and the antlers of the ram. The stronger and more branched the antlers, the more it denotes spiritual power (or inner fortitude).
