Reclaiming the Black Queen of Sheba after centuries of whitewashing, Williams invites the viewer to see Black beauty and strength channeled through his muse’s beautiful skin, bold hair and strength of spirit.

See full description & specifications

The Queen of Sheba is prominently tied to the origin story of the Ethiopian royal family in Kebra Nagast and while there is some debate as to whether her land included Yemen, early depictions are clear about her blackness. For example, there is written commentary by the theologian Origen of Alexandria from the first half the third century claiming Queen of Sheba as “Black and beautiful” and an illustration in Konrad Kyeser’s Bellifortis circa 1405. However, by the 19th century, Queen of Sheba’s blackness was commonly erased (e.g. Edward Poynter’s 1890 Visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon) and whitewashed.

Williams presents a more culturally accurate depiction of the Queen of Sheba. He invites the viewer to see Black beauty and strength channeled through his muse’s beautiful skin, bold hair and strength of spirit. In doing so, he connects the past and present with the dignity of the Queen of Sheba radiating from his wife, as seen through the lens of their love and respect for one another.
