Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This work began life as a small A5 painting that I did of a "vaguely" African warrior. I was then inspired to enlarge and expand on the painting after reading a book on the wonderful art of the Benin culture of Nigeria (15th-19th century AD). Most of the decorative elements that you can see in the background behind the warrior are based on actual motifs found in various artworks of the Benin culture.
