With Ala, her incredible feminine delicacy captured my heart. There is both a strength and a softness here, so true to the character of women.
Ala is a goddess of the Ibo, African people of eastern Nigeria. She is the mother goddess of the earth, ruler of the underworld, guardian of the harvest, and goddess of fertility for both people and animals.
