Bigmouth Strikes Again

I decided to just go ahead and make something different to the I last one I showed, rather than finish that one and start on the next illustration.

I copied some of the symbols on his body straight from the book I got from the library "The Decorative Arts of Africa". Their Adinkira symbols and this is what they mean (going down the arm then lastly the belly):
> Dwanimen  The ram's horns, a symbol of strength
> I made up this one
> Msusyidie  A symbol of sanctity and good fortune
> I made up this one
> Sepow A knife used in executions to prevent a curse on the king
