This artwork is of a boy reaching out towards the trunk of an elephant, and an elephant reaching out its trunk towards the boy. The relationship that we Kenyans should have with animals must be beneficial towards both parties. The animals mean no harm, so why should we have the right to harm them?
Allies, NOT Enemies.
This is my second time sending this art piece. I noticed that the other one was smudged on the black area. This one is better. Sorry for the inconvenience. This art piece is about a person that feels cast out, or engulfed by sin or darkness, but is surrounded by warmth coming from her surroundings. Kenya is a very warm culture that is full of love and acceptance.
Turkana tribe is part of the Nilotic tribes which constitutes the second largest pastoralist community in Kenya after the Maasais. The Turkana, still maintain their undiluted traditional way of life. They are great survivors, living in harsh hard-to-live-in terrain. They share the face of the harsh Kenyan realities yet endure it all while holding their cultural pride and dignity, which should be a national goal..
