IYA ABI MESAN
When exploring the city of Porto Novo, I saw this wonderful statue that looks so beautiful and giant. I was so eager to ask which I later did and my tour guide told me that this statue represents a good deed.
She’s from Nigeria. She has triplets in different years because of that she can not leave the same place with the king and that’s why she ran away from Nigeria down to Porto Novo where nobody knew her. She was welcomed by the people. After her death some of her children are still living around the community. So that statue was built to recognize her good deeds in the community.
The meaning of Iya Abi Mesan is Mother that give birth to nine Children.
