Jegede (ed.), Onobrakpeya: Masks of Flaming Arrows , (Milan, 2014), another set illustrated pp.230-231, cat. no. 268 a-n. In the 1960s Reverend Father Kevin Carroll, co-founder Oye-Ekiti Woodcarving Centre, was involved in a movement to use African art in religious worship. He commissioned Onobrakpeya to complete the controversial Stations of the Cross murals for St. Paul's Church in Ebute Metta, Lagos, completed in 1967: "Some vocal members of the Ebute Metta parish considered Onabrakpeya's interpretation of the Bible as contemptuous in its characterization. The subjects looked so Yoruba to one writer, Father M.O. Sanusi...that he felt that it represented a distortion of history." (Jegede 2014 p.17). In 1981 this subject was repeated in the artist's The Last Supper and the Stations of the Cross (illustrated in Jegede 2014, p.232 cat. no.269): "Each episode from Jesus' last days is precisely detailed and dramatized, but placed in an African setting. The apostles wear vividly patterned Nigerian prints. Jesus undergoes his trials at the hands of colonial-era police" (Cotter 2012). Bibliography D. Jegede (ed.), Onobrakpeya: Masks of Flaming Arrows , (Milan, 2014). H. Cotter, 'Bruce Onobrakpeya: Jewels of Nomadic Images' in The New York Times , (16 November 2012), p.C32.
