Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Nyamia Ama is a storm god from Senegal although as he is said to be a white child with large ears my verision of him is rather different! I have borrowed from the artworks of various ancient cultures for this painting: the lion you see standing at his feet is from the Urartian culture of ancient Turkey, the sun/moon above him to the right is based on a motif found in Inca art and the strange yellow beast in the left-hand corner is found in the art of ancient Benin. I can't remember, however, where his natty head-dress came from!
