A short-form version of the below statement from the artist, Derek Roberts, is printed on the back of the Oba Crown: The Gift of Empowerment card. 

Statement from the artist, Derek Roberts:
"My parents are from the Caribbean, so I grew up hearing stories of Black history. I always found the narratives of Black kings and queens engrossing — including the world of myths, legends, symbolism, and connections between humans and the earth.

The Yoruba tribe of the South West region of Nigeria captured my imagination with their colorful, eye-catching royal headdress, the Oba’s crown constructed of beads and cloth, with motifs of faces and birds. The crown embodies the intuition of the royal ancestor’s force and the great moral insight of the king. The faces are said to share destiny between a leader and his predecessors. The birds have parallel meanings of procreative power of life, and female power to counterbalance masculinity, as they mediate between heaven and earth. The crown’s colors of green, bronze, and gold are symbolic of the environment, while yellow is connected to the bringing of life and blue to the healing powers of water.

The headdress is a symbol of power, an homage to the Gods, the environment, and humanity. It’s the gift of empowerment through storytelling, and the knowledge your ancestors are always with you and will guide you."
