You Cannot Bite Water

Artwork by the illustrious Andre Hora. Yoruba proverb “no matter how sharp your teeth, you cannot bite water”. Water is a feminine element in Yoruba cosmology. The above proverb reminds us that the mother principle is ever elusive, protected & unstoppable. The mother principle does not yield to threats & is impervious to attacks. Fighting against this principle is futile. It renders weapons impotent. You cannot hold it, cannot contain it, cannot control it. Water is a feminine principle, women are the physical representation of this principle …all ways BE water 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
