This is a plate inspired by the biblical story of the 10 virgins awaiting the bride’s - groom.The central male figure with a crown is the bride’s-groom who is surrounded by ten young women looking earnestly at him.The groom is elaborately dressed as is typical of African princes while the young women are  in their Sunday-best with different hair-do.
