Nike Okundaye Davies (born 1954)
is a Nigerian artist known for painting, drawing and batik.

The signature on your piece is a definite match. Your batik

titled St. George and the Dragon has a current value of

$1000 to $1200 retail based on recent sales of sold work

in batik.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
