Exactly two weeks to go and I can’t keep still!!! 😃 | Please come along if you’re in NOLA - I can’t wait to talk about my Inu Nwunye: Bride Price collection | #NDA2018
#NoDeadArtists
#JonathanFerraraGallery
#ArtsDistrictNewOrleans #artbyREWA

My most recent work, “Onicha Ado N’Idu”, focussed on the Naming Rites & Traditions of the Igbos of Nigeria. With “Inu Nwunye: Bride Price” I want to educate an audience & bring to the fore our notion of Inu Nwunye: Bride Price.
This collection will showcase a girl’s passage from “Inyo Uno” – the knocking / introduction ceremony which heralds a bethrothal, “Ibunabaite” – the bride’s primary visit to her fiancé’s home through to “Igo Muo” and “Inu Mmanya” – the marriage and (palm) wine-carrying ceremony.
Many of these traditions, mainly the “Ibunabaite” and “Uri” aspects, have since died out. As the old adage says – old order changeth yielding place to the new. Cultural customs have faded to the pervasive western systems but some lingering elements of old still constitute a solid foundation upon which the marriage rites are operated today. The current western practices of marriage in Igboland are a superstructure imposed on the underpinnings of indigenous betrothal and marital rites.
Having very recently undergone both traditional and white (western) wedding ceremonies myself, I am keen to depict and highlight the now obsolete marital practices of the Igbo culture and educate my generation and a wider audience, on the symbolic practices of our forebears before it is lost to us entirely.
