Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning there was only sky above and waters below
  • You will need a long gold chain, a snail's shell filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut.
  • One day a god named Obatals decided to create dry land.
  • Can I create dry land?
  • Obatala poured the sand from the shell into the mist below then released the hen. The hen landed on the sand and immediately began pecking and scratching. The sand soon became vast mountains and valleys.
  • After several months Obatala became bored. He began shaping figures in clay.
  • When Obatala was finished he asked Olorun to breathe life into his clay people
  • The next day he saw his living, breathing work and he realized they were all deformed and ugly!
  • Olokun was never consulted about the creation of the earth and mankind in the first place.
  • In anger he caused a great flood, which nearly wiped out all of Obatala's creations. Once the waters resided, everyone took the very sea seriously from then on.
