Hello everyone hope you have an amazing and exciting moment today love to share you my recent work started from last week increasing and building my skills on soap carving.

Here comes laudable image of Elephant know as "Erin" in Yoruba language and its ethics values and its status in different cultures and tribes.
The idea and attributes of the Yorùbá people toward each animals.

From the names giving its used
to stylistically to produce an aesthetic effect or to eulogize a particular prestige human in a community or clan.
Ajanaku – an attributive name for the elephant which literally means “killer of Ajana, who captured live animals and kept a sample of each species but was unfortunately killed by
the same elephant”.
In Yoruba poetic expression, the elephant (erin) is also
referred to as ‘ajanaku’. The lingual tones of ‘ajanaku’ and ‘erin’
contribute to the poetic quality aesthetics of the expression. Another stylistic
Erin perform expressive functions. They can be
used positively in paying tributes, compliments and in eulogizing
human being who have aroused their interest in different ways.

Material used: soap.
Method used: carving.


Below are my process and stages with proof of ownership.
