"Ifa gbe wa ooo" is Yoruba language for "Ifa support us!" The drawing shows a divination tray as used by babalawo, the diviners working with the forces of the Orisha, and traditional symbols like the arugba, the carrier of the calabash of the Orisha, a drummer and a devotee with an abebe, a brass fan, for a water deity. The color blue here is symbol for the indigo dye, a typical Yoruba technique.
