In honor of the African man, who was the
original man, this circular masterpiece shows warriors in varying
stages of readiness to protect and defend the love and tenderness
demonstrated by the central figure of a father embracing his newborn.
This celebration of African-manhood incorporates
figures from various classical African nations. Moving
clockwise, the top figure is a member of the Masai, next is the
Oni (King) of Ife, next is the hunter, next, with the Adinkra
symbol for "a call to arms" on his chest, is a Nubian
warrior blowing the war horn, next is a Watusi, next is a Zulu
warrior with the Adinkra symbol for fearlessness on his back,
and in the center, an African-American father holding his newborn.
