Yoruba Creation Myth

This storyboard does not have a description.
My name is Olokun and I am the master of all that is in the waters below. Olorun and I are the Orisha, the council of gods.
I am Olorun and I rule the sky above.
I created this dry land by permission from Olorun and advice from Orunmila. I made this by getting a long gold chain, a snail's shell filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut. I shall name the land Ife!
These are the figures I made out of clay while drinking palm wine. Now I will have Olorun breathe life into them.
All of my creations are deformed and ugly! I swear to never drink again and will begin to make new, perfect beings.
My new creations are perfect beings and immediately built houses and cities! I am a patron of mankind and the Orisha love my work!
I was not consulted about these creations. I will now cause a great flood and wipe out all of these creations!
Once the water resided, everyone took the sea very seriously.
